PARIS — In a shuffle of executives between business divisions at luxury giant LVMH Moët Hennessy Louis Vuitton, Jean-Marc Gallot has rejoined Louis Vuitton as executive vice president, commercial activities, in charge of the international division.
He succeeds Philippe Schaus, who had moved over to DFS Group to become group president of merchandising and marketing as part of an overall restructuring of the senior management team at the Hong Kong retailer.
Most recently, Gallot had been managing director of the Maison Ruinart, an LVMH-owned Champagne house. He is succeeded in turn by Frédéric Dufour, effective Sept. 15.
Previously, Dufour was international director of Veuve Clicquot, another Champagne house owned by LVMH.
Gallot joined LVMH in 2003 as managing director of Louis Vuitton North America before being promoted to president of Louis Vuitton Europe in 2006. He had moved over to Ruinart in 2009.
