Philippe Dennery is a French citizen who spent his early years in the United States. In the late 1960s, he worked as a research physicist at the University of Pennsylvania and CERN in Geneva where for the first time in its history, he was chosen to be exchanged with two physicists from the National Academy of Science in Moscow.

Under his direction, this European interior design and construction company conducted major projects in the Middle East and Africa, as well as museums and most of the major national buildings in France in the last two decades. Over the years, Dennery has also acquired other companies, notably Cassegrain, a leading luxury goods retailer in Paris and Madrid, of which he remains principal owner. Dennery is also a director of the J-Net group, an ecology communication company.
