Swarovski has named David Wielemans its chief financial officer, beginning in April.
In his new role, Wielemans will become a member of Swarovski’s executive committee and will report to Alexis Nasard, the company’s first CEO from outside its founding family, who was appointed in June 2022. Wielemans will be based in Männedorf, Switzerland.
Wielemans replaces Frederik Westring, who is currently interim CFO. Westring will leave Swarovski at the end of June “to pursue other interests,” the company said, but until then will work on special projects.
Wielemans joins Swarvoski from EssilorLuxottica, where he served as co-CFO for EssilorLuxottica Group as well as group CFO for Essilor International. He holds a finance and accounting degree from CNAM Paris (Conservatoire National des Arts et Métiers).
In a statement, Nasard said that Wielemans will be “a key asset as we continue our luxurization journey toward sustainable profitable growth.”
