"Back in 1963, PPR was a building materials business under the leadership François Pinault. Later in the mid-1990s, PPR entered the retail sector become a recognized leader.

"PPR marked a new stage in its development with the purchase of Gucci in 1999, and thereafter built a multi-brand Luxury Goods division. In 2007, PPR seized a new growth opportunity with the purchase of a controlling stake in Puma, a world leader in sport & lifestyle, further establishing PPR as a leader in global brands." [1]
