Smooth Transitions at Richemont

14 november 2012

Luxury jewellery and watches group Richemont announced that Johann Rupert will vacate his chief executive position as of March 31, 2013.
Mr Rupert took on the role in March 2010 after Norbert Platt stepped down for health reasons. Back then Mr. Rupert informed investors and management that his role would have only been pro-tempore.
As major shareholder of the Richemont Group, which controls among the others the Cartier and Piaget brands, Mr Rupert will retain his chairman position and guiding role.
The Executive Officer’s role will be shared by current deputy CEO Richard Lepeu and Bernard Fornas, who will leave his position at Cartier at the end of the year.
As a mean to ensure a smooth transition, Mr Lepeu and Mr Fornas will join Mr Rupert on Richemont’s command deck for three months, starting from January 2013.
The two new executive officers will have different roles at Richemont; Mr. Fornas will be in charge of the subsidiaries, while Mr. Lepeu will be focused on the management of the parent company.
