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.
