For Parfums Christian Dior activities, he will report to Laurent Kleitman, CEO of Parfums Christian Dior.

According to an internal announcement seen by WWD, “his mission, in close collaboration with Claudia Marcocci, general brand director of Parfums Christian Dior, will be to help carry on and amplify the communication coherence work and the elevation of the image already widely initiated between beauty and couture divisions, and to ensure perfect cooperation between our two maisons.”

He went on to become director of press and international public relations at YSL, his last job before joining Dior.
