FranA?ois Pinault (born 21 August 1936) is a French businessman who runs the retail company PPR. He is a friend of former French President Jacques Chirac.
Pinault's holding company Artemis S.A., owns (or owned), among others, Converse shoes, Samsonite luggage, ChA?teau Latour, the Vail Ski Resort in Colorado, and Christie's auction house.
