today Nov 1, 2019
In the last two years, French department store group Galeries Lafayette has been busy on several major projects, from the launch of the Go for Good initiative to the opening of new stores in China and Europe, the acquisition of La Redoute and the inauguration of a flagship Galeries Lafayette branch on the Champs Elysées in Paris. Nicolas Houzé, CEO of Galeries Lafayette and BHV, is the guest of the latest podcast in the LuxurynsightXFashionNetwork series, in which he talks about all of these projects (the podcast is in French).
Nicolas Houzé belongs to the fifth generation of the family that founded Galeries Lafayette, having taken over at the head of the group from his father Philippe in 2011. In the podcast, Houzé talks about his career within the family group, about the generational handover and what it means to lead a family business today. He also discusses his vision of the future of luxury retail, and his plans for driving the digital transformation and international expansion of the Galeries Lafayette group.
