ROSSIGNOL PRESIDENT LAURENT BOIX-VIVES PASSED AWAY AT AGE 93

With great sadness, it has reached us the news of the death of Laurent Boix-Vives. The iconic company president Rossignol for almost 50 years, from 1956 to 2005, died on Thursday, June 18 at the age of 93.

Nightingale loses its iconic figure, who made a small craft workshop in Voiron the world’s first ski group. Laurent Boix-Vives has certainly written one of the most beautiful entrepreneur pages of the century and has made the practice of winter sports popular in France and the rest of the world. Those who had the chance to meet him remember a deeply human, thoughtful, demanding, and always caring man. He was able to pass on his sense of detail and well-executed matters.

Today we lose a symbol, a mentor, and a friend. Laurent Boix-Vives was a visionary industrialist and one of the great characters of the ski and winter sports development industry in France and around the world. Passionate entrepreneur, having taken part in the founding and development of the Courchevel resort, he bought Rossignol at the age of 29 in 1956 and becomes a world leader in skiing by focusing on innovation and internationalization.

He was also always very close to champions and athletes, putting the competition at the heart of the company’s values. From 1956 to 2005, Laurent Boix-Vives printed his energy, accuracy, and vision. He is an inseparable personality of Rossignol, a society to which he has dedicated his life.
We extend our deepest condolences to his family and loved ones on behalf of the great Nightingale family of whom he was the spiritual father.

Bruno CERCLEY President CE
