In an article distributed yesterday by French business magazine Challenges ( see the article here , in French), it appears to be that the Watchmaking Division of LVMH (TAG Heuer, Hublot, Zenith) is going to be reshuffled. The article makes reference to (without sources or statements) two significant arrangements: Frédéric Arnault, the 23-year-old child of Bernard Arnault (CEO of LVMH), gets another situation at TAG Heuer and Stéphane Bianchi is designated as the head of the Watchmaking Division. 

First, apparently a young fellow, Frédéric Arnault, Bernard’s penultimate child (matured 23), takes on a substantially more significant situation at TAG Heuer. Effectively delegated Head of Connected Watches at TAG in July 2017, he will presently be the Head of Strategy and Digital of the brand. Enthusiastic about new advances, this new Polytechnique graduate (much the same as his dad) was at that point responsible for the brand’s 2.0 items, yet he’s now offered a lot more extensive situation at TAG Heuer, a brand with incomes of EUR 900 million.

The second significant news reported by Challenges is the arrangement of another Managing Director of the Watchmaking Division at LVMH, in the name of Stéphane Bianchi. Already Head of Yves Rocher (a beautifying agents and excellence items bunch situated in France, with incomes of EUR 2 billion), he will currently take care of the three brands that comprise this division of LVMH: TAG Heuer, Hublot and Zenith. Challenges reports that when LVMH has offered no authority remark on these appointments.

The principle question concerns Jean-Claude Biver. While Biver isn’t hiding the certainty that he is encountering some medical conditions (he has been less obvious for a couple of months, remembering for online media), we don’t understand how this affects JCB and on the off chance that he will remain CEO of LVMH’s Watchmaking Division or in the event that he will have another job inside the group.
