Luxury Recruit, an executive search firm focused on the fashion and luxury industry, has announced the recent appointment of Olivier Parent as Managing Director.

Olivier brings a wealth of experience in executive search: having started his career in Paris in accounting and finance, Olivier moved into recruitment in 2010, joining Approach People Recruit S.A, working across sectors and helping build the organization from the ground-up, recruiting for key clients in Switzerland across EMEA. Whilst at Approach, Olivier identified the luxury goods sector as his preferred area of specialization and subsequently moved to Richemont Group, where he set up the Group’s first in-house resourcing function, dealing with C-level stakeholders and advising senior management on talent sourcing strategy and employing innovative and best in class frameworks and practices to identify and engage talent.

Having successfully established Richemont’s in-house platform and seeking new challenges, Olivier moved to London in 2018 and has been entrusted to lead the day to day activities of Luxury Recruit, working closely with Luxury Recruit CEO Mohammed Mirza. In particular, Olivier’s deep technical knowledge and experience of developing recruitment platforms will complement and enable the existing Luxury Recruit team as they continue to work with brands and leaders of all types, from public companies to family owned groups and start-up ventures.
