Change in the composition of the Board of Directors
At its meeting of December 14, 2018, the Board of Directors of Kering decided to co-opt Financière Pinault, represented by Ms. Héloïse Temple-Boyer, as the replacement for Ms. Patricia Barbizet, Vice-Chairman of the Board, who tendered her resignation.
François-Henri Pinault, Chairman of the Board of Directors, said: "I would like to thank Patricia Barbizet for her immense contribution, during her many years on the Board, to Kering's growth and transformation into a global luxury Group.”
Ms. Héloïse Temple-Boyer has been Deputy CEO of Artémis since 2018. She joined Artémis at the beginning of 2013 as Investment Director. Previously, she was Project Manager to the President and Director of International Purchasing of Groupe Casino, after more than five years in finance at Rothschild & Cie, as an Associate in the Mergers and Acquisitions team in Paris, and as an Associate at private equity firm Advent International.

By placing creativity at the heart of its strategy, Kering enables its Houses to set new limits in terms of their creative expression while crafting tomorrow's Luxury in a sustainable and responsible way.
