A chance to help run the iconic American jeweler Tiffany & Co. has catapulted Alexandre Arnault into the luxury world’s top echelons.

The 28-year-old son of French billionaire Bernard Arnault was thrust into the limelight on Thursday with a key role at Tiffany, after LVMH completed its $16 billion on-again-off-again takeover -- the luxury industry’s biggest. Alexandre was named executive vice president for products and communication, and will help new Chief Executive Officer Anthony Ledru oversee the company.
