Tiffany has added a chief marketing and chief commercial officer to its upper echelons, while Andy Hart, a 22-year company veteran who served as senior vice president of diamond and jewelry supply, has left.
The retailer recently promoted Andrea Davey to become its first chief marketing officer in five years, a company spokesperson says, confirming a report in WWD.
Davey has worked for Tiffany since 2013, according to her LinkedIn profile. She previously served as its senior vice president of marketing. She has also worked for Procter & Gamble and Warner Lambert.
The company has also appointed Gavin Haig its chief commercial officer.
Until recently, Haig was the chief commercial officer of Burberry. He has also served as CEO of Belstaff and managing director, international, for Cartier, according to his LinkedIn profile.
Two-decade Tiffany mainstay Andrew “Andy” Hart is leaving the company to become chief manufacturing officer for the Shade Store, a private equity–backed manufacturer of home products.
“My passion lies in U.S.-based manufacturing,” Hart wrote on LinkedIn, “and I have spent the majority of my career developing and growing vertically integrated manufacturing operations that produce unparalleled quality at scale.”
Hart joined Tiffany & Co. in 1999. He eventually became a member of its executive team, overseeing its diamond and jewelry supply and all aspects of the company’s manufacturing. He was promoted to senior vice president in 2012.
Tiffany was bought by LVMH in January. In its most recent financial results, the luxury conglomerate hailed the performance of its latest purchase.
“Driven by the growing success of its iconic products, Tiffany enjoyed a remarkable performance, particularly in its major market, the United States,” LVMH said in a statement.
LVMH also reported that in the first nine months of 2021, organic revenue from its watch and jewelry business (not including Tiffany) rose 49% over the prior year and 4% over pre-pandemic 2019.
