END OF AN ERA

The Peak (Malaysia) - - Watches • News -

If you’ve ever met Jean-Claude Biver in per­son, you’d think the man would never stop work­ing. Even though he is 69 this year, he has the sort of en­ergy to match a man in his 30s. How­ever, just re­cently, it was re­ported that the man is fi­nally step­ping down from his oper­a­tional re­spon­si­bil­i­ties as the Pres­i­dent of the LVMH Watch Divi­sion due to health is­sues. But Biver won’t be en­tirely out of the pic­ture as, he says, “I’ll no longer be cut­ting the onions and cry­ing in the kitchen early in the morn­ing, I’ll just come later to see if they are ready.” The man who will re­place Biver in do­ing the ‘cut­ting of the onions’, so to speak, will be Stéphane Bianchi, the for­mer CEO of the cos­met­ics firm Yves Rocher. Ef­fec­tive 1 No­vem­ber, Bianchi will be­come the CEO of TAG Heuer and over­see the op­er­a­tions of Hublot and Zenith.
