11 June, 2014

Rémy Cointreau has announced the appointment of Valérie Chapoulaud-Floquet as CEO. 

Chapoulaud-Floquet will join the group in mid September 2014 and report to Francois Heriard Dubreuil, chairman of Rémy Cointreau Group.

She replaces former CEO Frédéric Pflanz, who resigned from the role six months ago.

Chapoulaud-Floquet spent more than twenty years with the L’Oréal Group where she held various executive positions in Asia, Europe and North America.

After heading the Luxury Products Division at L’Oréal in the United States, Chapoulaud-Floquet joined Louis Vuitton in 2008 where she was eventually appointed president and CEO of the Americas region.

François Hériard Dubreuil said: “The arrival of Valérie Chapoulaud-Floquet marks a new phase in the development and ambitions of the Rémy Cointreau Group. Valérie has demonstrated her outstanding leadership qualities through a largely international career within highly renowned companies.

“Her keen understanding of the brand, her knowledge of the luxury sector, and her well known temperament and charisma are all assets which will enable her to perform her role to the full.”
