Alexandre Allard was born in Washington in 1968 and launched his first firm in 1986. A diehard entrepreneur, he went on to develop a variety of successful activities associated with new marketing and communication technologies during the 1990s. In 1995, he was one of three co-founders of Consodata, which became the largest behavioral database in the world. In 2000, he decided to make a radical shift and devote his time to his great passions: art and architecture.
Several years traveling around the world helped hone his ambition: to rediscover the creative energy of these legendary places and rekindle their flame by juxtaposing the power of cultural heritage with the dynamism of contemporary art.
In 2006, he decided to work with Alain Hivelin to bring about the renaissance of the House of Balmain. In late 2007, he began to focus on the Royal Monceau to transform it into an effervescent 21st-century Parisian palace.
In 2008, Alexandre Allard created the group that bears his name and his vision. He is currently working on a major historical landmark in Sao Paulo, wishing to transform it into a place dedicated to the support of creativity.
