Zadig&Voltaire is betting on Rémy Baume to reach 500 million in revenue. Thierry Giller, founder and majority shareholder of the Franch brand made the statement to Le Figaro. In order to successfully substitute Jean-Jaques Guével, who flew to Qatar to join Balmain, and to give a push to the brand’s growth, he has chosen a manager who “has already reached excellent results in building up brands and organizations”. Zadig&Voltaire’s revenue today is of circa 350 million euro a year.
Betting on Rèmy Baume
With a strong women prêt-à-porter, a succesful accessories department and high potential in men’s fashion. Le Figaro considers these to be the premises from which Baume, manager with experience in fashion companies (and more), will be starting from. “He has an incredible eye and is full of ideas. He is excited to be joining our brand – states Mr. Giller -, as we represent a step full of passion throughout his career”. Expectations are high for Baume, proven by the +40% revenue objective that has been set. “Rèmy will be our engine – concludes Giller -, the vector thanks to which we will modernize and increase the brand’s influence”.
