Castanea Partners has appointed Tiffany & Co. alum Jill Beraud to head the jewelry brand Ippolita in the role of chief executive officer.

Prior to Ippolita, Beraud served as Tiffany’s executive vice president of global retail and strategic store development and design. Before joining Tiffany’s, she served as the ceo of beauty firm Living Proof.

Her first day at Ippolita was Oct. 26.

In a statement about her appointment, Beraud said: “I’m looking forward to building on Ippolita’s unique design aesthetic and brand story to accelerate growth globally and ensure it reaches its full potential.”

Castanea’s managing partner Brian Knez said of her hiring: “Jill is an experienced and highly successful operator and brand builder and brings to the company a wealth of strategic and organizational leadership capabilities.”

Beraud succeeds former Ippolita ceo Joe Cavalcante who, after a four-plus year run, departed the brand this summer to pursue opportunities on the West Coast.
