Interparfums Appoints Gerard Kappauf to the Board of Directors

Interparfums has announced significant changes to its board of directors, including the appointment of Gerard Kappauf as an independent director. This comes alongside the departure of long-serving directors Michel Dyens and Patrick Choël. As a result, the board size has been reduced to nine members, with five designated as independent directors.

Interparfums Chairman and CEO, Jean Madar, expressed enthusiasm for Kappauf’s addition to the board, highlighting his expertise in fashion, luxury, culture, and the art of living. Madar believes that Kappauf’s diverse perspectives will contribute valuable insights to the company.

Madar also expressed gratitude to Michel and Patrick for their many years of service and their invaluable contributions.

Kappauf’s professional journey began in the fashion industry, working behind the scenes at a Jean-Paul Gaultier fashion show. He later provided marketing and acquisition consulting services to the L’Oréal Group during Lindsay Owen Jones’ chairmanship. In 1992, Kappauf founded Citizen K magazine, which eventually became Citizen K International, a renowned publication in the fashion, luxury, and lifestyle sectors. Over the years, Kappauf expanded the magazine’s reach by launching Citizen K Homme in 2013 and transforming Citizen K International in 2014 with a new format and aesthetic.

In 2016, Kappauf further extended the magazine’s global presence with Citizen K Arabia, tailored specifically for the Middle East audience. This edition included customized content for the Emirates and the Middle East region. Most recently, Kappauf introduced The Kurator in 2021, the first a-gender magazine in the Middle East, serving as a luxury supplement to Gulf News, a leading daily newspaper in the region.

Interparfums boasts a prestigious brand portfolio that includes Abercrombie & Fitch, Anna Sui, Boucheron, Coach, Donna Karan, DKNY, Ferragamo, and more.
