PARIS — French luxury conglomerate Kering has appointed Patrick Pruniaux, current chief executive officer of Ulysse Nardin, as the new ceo of Girard-Perregaux.
Tasked with increasing awareness and accelerating growth at the two Swiss watchmaking brands, Pruniaux, who succeeds Antonio Calce in the role, will continue to report to Albert Bensoussan, ceo of Kering’s Watches & Jewelry Activities division. “The dynamism he has shown over the past year as head of Ulysse Nardin convinced me that he was the best person to develop these two brands, and to capitalize on their respective identities, heritages and technological know-how,” Bensoussan said.
“I’m looking forward to jumping into the creative process and exploring fashion through a different lens,” said actor Michael B. Jordan exclusively to WWD about becoming the first face of @coach ‘s men’s business.
