It isn’t easy being a high school dropout and becoming one of the biggest billionaires in the world. That is the story of Francoise Pinault in a nutshell. He is one of the most celebrated billionaires in France owing to his smart business techniques and strategies.
His story is one of true hard work and determination to become successful. Pinault started out his group of holdings known as Artemis which is today, the leading luxury consortium in the world. He has more than fifteen of the world’s ultimate and best luxury brands working under him and Artemis is one of the main sources of his wealth.
Pinault was involved in a long-standing battle with LVHM over the ownership of GUCCI, one of the most attractive and renowned luxury brands in the world. This war was chronicled very extensively in the French media as it involved two of the richest Frenchmen at that time, Pinault and Bernard Arnault.
