LVMH has completed its acquisition of American jeweller Tiffany & Co and promoted former LVMH Executive VP of Global Commercial Activities Anthony Ledru, from the SKEMA Class of 1995, to the position of CEO. Anthony Ledru joined the SKEMA Grande Ecole programme in 1992. He graduated in 1995. He then joined CNP Assurances in Argentina, before moving over to Cartier in 1997. It was then that Anthony Ledru began his journey in international luxury.

Two years later he joined Tiffany &Co., which he left for the role of President and CEO of Louis Vuitton Americas before being appointed Executive Vice President of Global Commercial Activities at Louis Vuitton-Moët Hennessy (LVMH).

"I am delighted to re-join Tiffany, the most iconic American luxury brand which I have long admired. I also come back to a Maison that is at the forefront of the environmental and sourcing standards in its industry. The potential ahead is limitless, and I look forward to writing this next deeply promising chapter along with the 14,000 Tiffany employees around the world," he commented.
