RICHEMONT The Next Generation
CEOs have changed hands at two of the Richemont Group’s prestigious maisons. Come April 1st, Chabi Nouri will take over as CEO of Piaget, while Louis Ferla will lead Vacheron Constantin. Nouri, who is Piaget’s first female CEO and an expert in luxury marketing, spent most of her Richemont career at Cartier before switching to Vogue Cigarettes for six years and returning to join Piaget in 2014. Passionate and upbeat, she is an excellent choice for the task of invigorating the brand and leveraging on its rich history. Ferla takes over Vacheron Constantin’s operations from Juan Carlos Torres, who announced his retirement to non-executive president. Torres has been credited with the maison’s significant development since the group’s acquisition of it and Ferla hopes to continue his successes. He served as managing director of sales and marketing and has had 17 years of experience in Asia at Alfred Dunhill and Cartier.
