PARIS — Jean-Claude Biver, one of the most charismatic figures in the Swiss watch industry, said Friday he was taking a step back from day-to-day operations at Hublot to focus his energy on developing new products and marketing initiatives for the luxury brand.
Biver stepped down as chief executive officer of Hublot, but will stay on as chairman and official spokesman, a move that analysts said should guarantee continuity at the helm of the rapidly growing company.
