Janssen (pictured) will oversee the company’s efforts to increase speed-to-market, efficiency, automation, and innovation. She will be a member of the Swarovski executive committee, reporting to CEO Alexis Nasard.
Previously, Janssen was chief supply officer for Philips, the Swiss medical technology manufacturer. Prior to that, she was PepsiCo’s vice president of supply chain for Europe and sub-Saharan Africa.
A Swarovski statement said that Herbert Schuler, its current chief operations officer and a 32-year veteran of the company, will move to an unspecified new position where he will “continue to play a pivotal role.”
