PARIS — The Hermès family has appointed Julie Guerrand president of a newly created nonlisted holding company owning more than 50 percent of Hermès International’s share capital, it said Wednesday.
Guerrand belongs to the sixth generation of heirs to Thierry Hermès, who founded the company in 1837. Earlier this year, she took over as director of corporate development in charge of investments and coordination missions at the firm, reporting to Mireille Maury, managing director of finance and administration.
