Biver Named Hublot Chief; Cohen is President of Movado and ESQ

Top management appointments were announced at two leading Swiss-made watch brands in June. Jean-Claude Biver, a veteran of the Swiss luxury watch industry, has been named executive managing director of Hublot, an innovative Swiss luxury brand. He also joined the company's board of directors. He previously was a top official with the Swatch Group, the world's largest watchmaker. Biver made his mark in Swiss watchmaking with his work at Audemars Piguet. In 1983, he bought the venerable Swiss brand Blancpain (founded in 1735), which he relaunched and established as a leader in very high end watches. In 1992, Biver sold Blancpain to the Swatch Group but remained president until early 2002. He also led the Group's upscale Omega brand and served on the Group's board, where he was co-responsible for Swatch Group operations in Japan, South Korea, Singapore, and Malaysia. Geneva-bas
