According to Reuters, Mr. Jean-Claude Biver has confirmed that he will resign from the LVMH watch department, which is Hublot Hublot, Operational responsibilities of TAGHeuer and Zenith. Mr. Jean-Claude Beaver will continue to serve as ‘Non-Executive Chairman’ and still plan to participate in a number of events hosted by Hublot and TAG Heuer in the second half of this year.
Long-term rumors have been confirmed, which means that the charming entrepreneur and ‘magician’ of the watchmaking industry will gradually retreat behind the scenes. In his brilliant career, he revived Blancpain, revitalized OMEGA, and saved Hublot. Mr Jean-Claude Beaver has lost a significant amount of weight over the past three years, and Reuters said ‘serious health problems’ were a key reason for his decision.
French business magazine Challenges states that Stephane Bianchi, CEO of the current French makeup brand Yves Lecher, will be the successor to Mr. Jean-Claude Beaver, and CEO of Colosseum Berner Arnault’s youngest son, Frederic Arnault, will become head of strategy and digital at TAGHeuer. But so far, these rumors have not been confirmed, and Lou Weixuan Group declined to comment. (Photo / text watch home Xu Chaoyang)
