Serge Dassault was the son of Marcel Dassault, from whom he inherited the Dassault Group, and Madeline Dassault (née Minckes). Both his parents were 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 CEOs Charles Edelstenne and Éric Trappier.

He was a member of the Union for a Popular Movement political party, as was his son Olivier, who was a deputy in the French National Assembly. He was a former Mayor of the city of Corbeil-Essonnes, a southern suburb of Paris. In 2005, he inaugurated the 2 millioneuro Islamic cultural centre (comprising a mosque) in his city of Corbeil-Essonnes. In December 1998, he was sentenced to two years' probation in the Belgian Agusta scandal, and was fined 60,000 Belgian francs (about €1,500).

In 2004, he became a senator, and in this position, he was an outspoken advocate of conservative positions on economic and employment issues, claiming that France's taxes and workforce regulations ruin its entrepreneurs. In November 2012, responding to the Ayrault government's plan to legalise gay marriage, he controversially said, during an interview for France Culture, that authorising gay marriage cause "no more renewal of the population. [...] We'll have a country of homosexuals. And so in ten years there'll be nobody left. It's stupid".

Personal life

Dassault married Nicole Raffel on 5 July 1950. They had four children: Olivier, Laurent, Thierry, and Marie-Hélène.


He died suddenly at his office at the Dassault group headquarters in Paris on 28 May 2018, from heart failure at the age of 93.
