Biography of Franck Riboud 
Franck Riboud (born 1955) is a French businessman. He serves as the chairman and chief executive officer of Groupe Danone.

Franck Riboud was born on 7 December 1955 in Lyon. He is the son of Antoine Riboud, the previous CEO, who transformed the former European glassmaker BSN Group into a leading player in the food industry. He attended the Ampère High-school (Lycée Ampère) in Lyon, and the École polytechnique fédérale de Lausanne in Switzerland.

Riboud took over the reins at Danone from his father in 1996, although his family only spoke for 1% of Danone's share capital at the time.

He is on the board of directors for Renault SA. He also sits on the board of directors of the Consumer Goods Forum.
