In 2011, Romain, Julien’s cousin, fell under the Gazzola spell. Putting his law degree aside, he joined the family business. Working in Lionel’s shadow, he completed his first projects for Guerlain and for the decorator Jacques Garcia. He also plied his new trade for restaurant owner Jean-François Piège in 2015. This unique experience saw him mold made-to-measure faux-bois boards to create a decorative wall… made of concrete, a loving nod to his great grandfather’s work as a rockwork artisan!
After 42 years of collaboration in the service of GMT, the Gazzola brothers Laurent and Lionel stepped aside, passing the torch to the younger generation. The duo of Romain and Julien took the helm of the company in 2014, firmly driving the company onward into the 21st century. As always, business continued under the bright and vigilant gaze of Denise, guardian of the company’s values until 2016.
Passionate and demanding, Romain and Julien have the exacting expertise of a family immersed in the construction sector for nearly 90 years. Their ambition: sustain and enhance the expertise they inherited, while focusing on the essential: their vocation as fifth-generation stonemasons.
