Hubert Guerrand-Hermès (1940 – 2016) studied law before he stepped into the management of the Hermès Group. He was the Vice-Chairman of Hermès Holding Emile Hermès, and the General Manager of Hermès Group’s real estate companies. Hubert was formerly the Foreign Trade Adviser to the French Goverment. Amongst other roles, he was also Treasurer of Société des Amis du Musée National d’Art Moderne de Paris, and board member of L’Edition Artistique. In 1999, he was awarded the Officer of the National Order of the Legion of Honour in France. Mr Guerrand-Hermès had been an important support to the work of the GHFP and his passing has been a huge loss for the Foundation.
