Honored as a “mail-order magnate” by Time Magazine, and as one of Vogue’s “ten most stylish women in fashion,” Vivre founder Eva Jeanbart-Lorenzotti celebrates a life of collecting, as opposed to one spent simply buying. Traveling the world for both business and pleasure, Jeanbart-Lorenzotti searches for people, places and things that tell a story, and then curates her discoveries and delivers them with an editor’s eye and ear through Vivre. Her sense of adventure and passion for mining hidden gems has made her a celebrated tastemaker who has served as a spokesperson for BlackBerry, as the focus of a Cadillac-sponsored CNN segment titled “Business Unusual,” as a go-to expert for magazines and websites across the spectrum from shelter to beauty, and as a speaker at venues as diverse as the Financial Times Global Conference, the Harvard Business School Entrepreneurship Conference and the International Herald Tribune Luxury Conference. In addition, Jeanbart-Lorenzotti is the host of Luxury Explorer TV, a travel and lifestyle program exclusively available to the top 250 high-end hotels in the United States.
Born and raised in Switzerland and fluent in five languages, Jeanbart-Lorenzotti is a graduate of Columbia University and began her career as an investment banker at Lazard Freres. She has been hailed as one of Crain’s “Forty Under 40,” was a finalist for the Ernst & Young Entrepreneur of the Year Award and is a member of the Young Presidents’ Organization. In addition to business groups, Jeanbart-Lorenzotti also lends her time and expertise to a number of philanthropic efforts, including leadership roles in the Guggenheim Museum’s Young Collector’s Club, the Henry Street Settlement and Save Venice, Inc. Jeanbart-Lorenzotti lives in Manhattan with her husband and their two children.
