The generational handover at LVMH continues apace. The long-standing Chief Financial Officer, Jean-Jacques Guiony, 62, is planning to move on in 18 months’ time. He will be replaced by Cécile Cabanis, 52, who has been appointed LVMH’s new deputy finance director. She spent 17 years at the French yoghurt maker Danone.
