Ex-Bulgari chief to become Tiffany & Co. CEO

14 july 2017
Tiffany & Co. has picked veteran luxury executive Alessandro Bogliolo, a former Bulgari chief operating officer, as its new CEO.
Bogliolo, 52, is currently CEO of Italian clothing retailer Diesel, where he has led a program to revitalize the company’s brand and improve the shopping experience for customers, Tiffany said. He previously spent 16 years at luxury jeweler Bulgari, including as chief operating officer and executive vice president for jewelry, watches and accessories.
Tiffany expects Bogliolo to fill a new post on October 2. He will also join the company's board of directors.
Tiffany's former CEO Frederic Cumenal, stepped down abruptly from the role in February.
The New York-based jeweler’s sales waned over the past two years, with 2016 holiday revenues recording a 4% drop. Tiffany’s February announcement of Cumenal’s departure noted that the board had been disappointed by recent financial results, and said the company needed to execute its strategies faster to compete with rivals.
“Today’s announcement concludes the board’s thorough process to identify and recruit an accomplished leader to position the company for sustainable growth in the years ahead,” the company said. “Alessandro has a well-deserved reputation for creativity and execution, having previously led a number of international brands to success and improved performance.”
Bogliolo vowed to strengthen the company’s position among the world’s top luxury brands.
“It is my goal to continue to delight our customers with compelling product offerings, supported by best-in-class operations,” he said.
