Who is Edward de Lumley, Rachida Dati's new wealth advisor?

Edward de Lumley (56 years old) is the new heritage, museums, archives, architecture advisor to Rachida Dati, Minister of Culture, succeeding Sylvain Amic. He was able to count on the support of Gaëtan Bruel, director of the minister’s office, whom he met several times during his career.

Edward de Lumley holds a master’s degree in public law from the University of Aix Marseille III and a DESS from the University of Paris-Panthéon-Assas, obtained in 1996. For 7 years, from 1999 to 2006, he was a research fellow at the legal department of OPAC of Paris (formerly Paris Habitat). His Russian family ancestry then influenced his career: he was appointed director of the Alliance Française of Yekaterinburg (2006-2008), then of the French Institute of Saint-Petersburg (2008-2011).

In 2012, he joined the Center for National Monuments (CMN) as administrator of the City of Carcassonne and the fortress of Salses. But in 2014, the call from the east, in this case Russia, led him to be deputy advisor for cooperation and cultural action at the French embassy in Russia until 2016, when he returned to the CMN, this time as director of cultural and audience development. In this capacity, he is responsible for the design and implementation of the cultural policy of the public establishment.
