Olivier Lefebvre

At the head of Cheval Blanc since 2008, Olivier Lefebvre has been given new functions within LVMH at a time when the hospitality brand of the group has just changed part of its management.

A graduate of ENSAE Paris and INSEAD, Olivier Lefebvre began his professional career as a consultant, first with Arthur Andersen before joining The Boston Consulting Group.

In 2002, he joined Unibail as Investment Director and joined Société Louvre three years later, first as Director of Financial Affairs before taking over as Head of Development and being elected Member of the Executive Committee.

His adventure within the LVMH group began in 2008 when he was appointed CEO of the Cheval Blanc hospitality brand, creating the LVMH Hotel Management entity at the same time. At the same time, he was a member of the board of directors of Cova Montenapoleone and General Manager of the Royal van Lent Shipyard.

I am excited by this news as I have nothing but respect for the success and reputation built by Olivier and the Cheval Blanc teams, with values that truly reflect the future development of LVMH Hotel Excellence: creativity, boldness, genuine care and entrepreneurial culture. Olivier is a recognized professional in the hospitality industry and I am convinced that he will help us reach new limits of hospitality excellence. 

Stéphane Rinderknech, Managing Director of LVMH of Hospitality Excellence
