"I am delighted to welcome Anish into our Group. North America is a strategic market for LVMH, with our brands witnessing strong performances. Anish will help us further accelerate growth and explore new development opportunities. Anish will work alongside the global leaders of our businesses leveraging his strategic skills and sharing his deep knowledge of the market," said Bernard Arnault, Chairman & CEO of LVMH.

Anish joins LVMH from McKinsey & Company, where he co-leads the Global Strategy & Corporate Finance practice and supports clients across industries. At McKinsey since 1999, he has counseled senior executives of leading global companies on issues related to corporate strategy, M&A, alliances, portfolio management and organization.
