Biography of Arnaud Lagardère 
Arnaud Lagardère, born in Boulogne-Billancourt, France, on March 18, 1961, is the son of Jean-Luc Lagardère, the former chairman of Matra and Hachette. He is the General and Managing Partner of Lagardère SCA, holding company of the Lagardère Group.


With a DEA higher degree (Master) in economics from Paris Dauphine University, Arnaud Lagardère joined the Lagardère Group in 1986.

He was appointed Director (1986) and then CEO (1989) of MMB, which became Lagardère SCA in 1996.

In book publishing, the group acquired 40% of Vivendi Universal Publishing, Houghton Mifflin, and Warner Books: Today, Lagardère Publishing is number two in its sector worldwide. In 2006, it created a new entity – Lagardère Sports – which became Lagardère Unlimited in May 2010, specializing in sport industry and entertainment, with the successive acquisitions of Sportfive, IEC , World Sport Group and Best.
Today, driven by Arnaud Lagardère, the group is working to expand its business digitally, especially in publishing and media.
