END OF AN ERA
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.
