With just two weeks before the opening of its Swiss Watch show in Las Vegas, JCK Events has announced two new additions to its management team. Taking the lead on Swiss Watch is JCK LUXURY’s event director Sarin Bachmann, joined by newly appointed industry consultant Regina Ciarleglio Leadem.
Bachmann returned to the JCK team in January in the role of event director for LUXURY and Swiss Watch. She brings more than seven years of experience from the luxury-goods industry to develop strategy for JCK. She had previously been head of the LUXURY shows from 2002 to 2005.
Leadem brings prior experience in the watch and jewelry industry with esteemed brands Cartier, Swiss Army, Christian Dior, and Gucci. Most recently, Leadem served as vice president of client development for GE Capital, focusing on the watch and jewelry market. She is heavily involved in the industry and serves on the boards of Jewelers Vigilance Committee as well as the Women’s Jewelry Association.
“As we look forward to another successful event in Las Vegas, we are thrilled about the vast array of experience and fresh perspective that Sarin and Regina will bring to the event,” said JCK Events senior vice president Yancy Weinrich. “As today’s retail landscape changes, we will continue to evolve Swiss Watch to meet the needs of our brands and retailer community. We look forward to sharing many exciting new opportunities for timepieces at JCK for 2016 and beyond.”
Swiss Watch takes place May 29–June 1 at the suites of Mandalay Bay and Mandarin Oriental in Las Vegas, by appointment only. To learn more about its exhibitors and to make an appointment, visit luxury.jckonline.com/Swiss-Watch-at-JCK.
