French entrepreneur (Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Dassault Group) and conservative politician.
Serge Dassault is the son of Marcel Dassault, from whom he inherited the Dassault Group, and Madeline Dassault (née Minckes). Both his parents are of Jewish heritage but later converted to Roman Catholicism. Since the elder Dassault's death in 1986, Serge Dassault has continued developing the company, with the help of current CEO Charles Edelstenne.
He studied at the Lycée Janson de Sailly, the École polytechnique, Supaéro and HEC Paris. During the Second World War, he was jailed when his father was sent to Buchenwald for refusing any cooperation with the German aviation industry.
His group also owns Groupe Le Figaro.
Dassault married Nicole Raffel on 5 July 1950. They have four children: Olivier, Laurent, Thierry, and Marie-Hélène.
