Groupe Pochet –a producer of luxury packaging for the beauty industry, has announced the promotion of Xavier Gagey to the role of Chief Executive Officer and member of the Executive Board, effective September 1, 2021.

He will replace Tristan Farabet, whom we hear is leaving to pursue personal projects.

Gagey joined the Pochet Group and its executive committee in 2018, as general manager of the Glass Division.

A graduate of the French National Electricity University and with an MBA from EDHEC, Gagey was previously with the Arcelor-Mittal/APERAM Group.

For the past three years, he has been instrumental in improving the industrial performance of the historic glass division within the group.

Irène Gosset, chairman and shareholder of the Groupe Pochet, said, “I would like to warmly thank Tristan on behalf of all the shareholders for his decisive action in the service of the Group over the past seven years and for the significant progress made. This positive momentum now enables us to look to the future with confidence and to open a new page in the group’s history with Xavier, whose proven talents will benefit the group’s activities as a whole.”
