In 2011 the Bulgari family, majority shareholder of the renowned Italian jewellery house established in 1884 by Greek silversmith Sotirio Bulgari, joined forces with the LVMH Group and transferred its majority shareholding in Bulgari SpA. The L3.7bn, all-share deal made the Bulgaris the second largest family shareholder of the LVMH Group. After the acquisition FRANCESCO TRAPANI, great-grandson of the founder, CEO of Bulgari SpA and the driving force behind its success over the past 20 years, was made a member of the LVMH board of directors and appointed President of the LVMH Watch & Jewellery Division.
