Born in Paris on 19 April 1947, Antoine Gallimard joined Éditions Gallimard in 1973. Éditions Gallimard was founded in 1911 by his grandfather Gaston Gallimard, and chaired by his father Claude Gallimard starting in 1976. He was appointed Publisher of Éditions Gallimard in 1981, and Chairman and CEO in March 1988, a position he still holds today. During these years, Antoine Gallimard has preserved the independence of the family business, while modernizing and developing the editorial and business structures. He is now head of the third French publishing group, and present in many sectors. Antoine Gallimard chaired the French National Union of Publishers from 2010 to 2012.
