PARIS — LVMH Moët Hennessy Louis Vuitton is proposing to name two new women directors to its board next month.
At its annual general meeting on April 14, the company will suggest the addition of Clara Gaymard and Natacha Valla.
Gaymard, a graduate of the elite Ecole Nationale d’Administration, held several positions within the French government before becoming president of the Invest in France Agency in 2003. In 2006, she became chief executive officer of General Electric’s French arm, a role she held until earlier this year. She is also a cofounder of Raise, a capital investment firm and nonprofit endowment fund.
Valla, an economist, started her career at the European Central Bank, and has also worked at the Banque de France and Goldman Sachs. She is currently deputy director of CEPII, a French economic think tank, leading its macroeconomic and international finance program, and advises the ACPR, the French administrative authority responsible for supervising the banking and insurance sectors.
