Audemars Piguet Supports Breast Cancer Research

Swiss luxury watchmaker Audemars Piguet announced in August an exclusive, first-time partnership with cosmetics leader Estée Lauder and lifestyle expert Colin Cowie to benefit the Breast Cancer Research Foundation.

Among those attending were George-Henri Meylan, chief executive officer of Audemars Piguet & Cie; François-Henry Bennahmias, president of Audemars Piguet North America; Evelyn Lauder, senior corporate vice president of The Estée Lauder Companies and founder and chairman of the Breast Cancer Research Foundation; Peter Lichtenthal, senior vice president of global marketing for Estée Lauder; Cowie; and Myra Biblowit, president of The Breast Cancer Research Foundation.
