JOINING BAUMER: Reinforcing management in anticipation of its first freestanding boutique, Place Vendôme jeweler Lorenz Bäumer has named Cristina Egal its managing director. Egal joined the firm earlier this month and reports to Bäumer, the president, founder and creative force behind the firm founded in 1992.
Previously, Egal operated a namesake communications agency and boasted such clients as BNP Paribas, Sodexo, Servair and Fondation Claude Pompidou. Also a food aficionado, Egal has published a book of her recipes, operated her own restaurant in Paris and launched two Relais & Châteaux properties, plus a gourmet television channel.
