TIFFANY NAMES BELLAICHE: Tiffany & Co. has appointed Jean-Marc Bellaiche as senior vice president of strategy and business development. In the newly created role, Bellaiche will be responsible for new and existing business initiatives outside of jewelry, such as watches, leather goods, eyewear and fragrance.
“The role was created to really have senior leadership within those other businesses outside of the core jewelry business, and to have someone focus on those categories and the opportunity within them,” said a spokesperson for the company, noting it was “too early to speculate” if the brand would make an increased push beyond its core jewelry market upon Bellaiche’s start on June 2. Bellaiche currently holds the position of senior partner and managing director of the Boston Consulting Group.
