Patrick Chalhoub began his career in 1979 when he decided to become involved in the realization of his father’s vision to build a bridge between the East and West and be the ambassador of luxury lifestyle in the region. For nearly 30 years, Patrick has been fully involved in the strategic development of the business to guarantee its long-term success. As such, he continues to expand the group’s distribution, retail business, marketing and communications activities and is also eager to strengthen the group’s support services in terms of offer and skills. Keen to preserve the Chalhoub family values that have inspired the constitution of the business, he remains very enthusiastic about the motivation and the training of his teams (6,300 people) as well as his responsibility to the community and society at large. He has been instrumental in guiding the development of a Corporate Social Responsibility program for the group, called Chalhoub IMPACT with a focus on education, arts & culture and environmental sustainability. Today, in his capacity as the Joint Chief Executive Officer, his role is to manage the group’s strategic development and ensure its long term success.
