Hélène PIETRINI (96)

Alumna and queen of flavors

At the head of 'The World's 50 Best Restaurants' in London: a French woman and ESCP Europe alumna! Since 2016, Hélène Pietrini (96) directs the organization that some consider as the Oscars of gastronomy. Every year it delivers its long-awaited list of the 50 best restaurants in the world, drawn up by a panel of voters from all over the world.

After graduating from ESCP Europe's Marketing Masters in 1996, Hélène held several marketing positions in brand management in international groups such as Unilever, L'Oréal or Dim. In 2012, she turned to the world of hospitality and catering by becoming Strategic Marketing Director of Relais & Châteaux, before taking the helm of the prestigious 'World's 50 Best Restaurants' organization.

With this project, Hélène mixes passion and adrenaline, with a culminating point every year: a high-profile ceremony to announce the ranking which brings together several hundreds of chefs at each edition. On June 19, it was in Bilbao that you could find the top of the gastronomy. #1 in the ranking was the Osteria Francescana in Modena, Italy.
