FAMILY AFFAIR: The Hermès family, out to prove its unity in the face of advances by LVMH Moët Hennessy Louis Vuitton, has added another two members to its executive ranks. Eric de Seynes, 51, has been named head of the supervisory board, succeeding Jérôme Guerrand, who has resigned after 20 years in the post. De Seynes is chief executive officer of Yamaha Motor France. Meanwhile, Julie Guerrand will take over as director of corporate development in charge of investments and coordination missions. She will report to Mireille Maury, managing director of finance and administration at Hermès. Julie Guerrand, 36, has been working for the Rothschild Group since 1998. Both belong to the sixth generation of heirs to Thierry Hermès, who founded the company in 1837.
