1991 — 1992

Diversifying Louis Vuitton

Enlisted to focus on mergers and acquisitions, my role was to support Louis Vuitton’s diversification beyond leather goods. My work included a deep dive into all luxury categories from perfume and lingerie to jewelry. This work resulted in the acquisition of Berluti by LVMH, Louis Vuitton’s first foray into footwear.

Improving Productivity and Profit

After a year in Paris, I relocated to Los Angeles to support the turnaround of a manufacturing facility outside of the city. The following year, my role evolved into Director of Operations Louis Vuitton North America (LVNA) where I developed a strategy and later, implemented the first point of sales system for the company. That system was ultimately rolled out globally.
