Arthur de Villepin
Founder and CEO, Art de Vivre
He has the looks and connections of a particularly debonair Frenchman—his father Dominique is a former French prime minister—but it’s the lifestyle group Arthur founded, Art de Vivre, that’s made the city sit up and take notice. It’s an umbrella under which Arthur runs various interests focused on introducing the best elements of French culture and tradition to Hong Kong and Mainland China. These interests include the wine and art outfit, Pont des Arts, the artistic endeavours of the Art de Vivre Collection and Yellow Korner, consulting branch Villepin International, and an investment branch. Quite an empire in the making for the young CEO.
