In November, former Tiffany CEO Alessandro Bogliolo (pictured) will become chair of Audemars Piguet’s board of directors.
Bogliolo, who joined the board of the watch brand on Aug. 21, will take over from longtime chair Jasmine Audemars.
Audemars, the great-granddaughter of the watch brand’s cofounder, has served as board chair since 1992. Before joining the family business, she spent 23 years a journalist, including 12 years as editor-in-chief of Swiss newspaper Journal de Genève.
Audemars will remain the chair of the AP Foundation.
Italian-born Bogliolo headed Tiffany & Co. from 2017 to 2021, until he stepped down following Tiffany’s acquisition by LVMH. He has also been CEO of Italian fashion brand Diesel and served as global managing director for Bulgari.
According to his LinkedIn profile, Bogliolo currently serves as a member of the board of Bath & Body Works and a member of the board of trustees for the Whitney Museum of American Art.
In June, Audemars CEO François-Henry Bennahmias told Swiss newspaper Le Temps he planned to leave by the end of 2023. Bennahmias has served in the top role since 2012. A replacement has not yet been named.
