The Swatch Group chairwoman Nayla Hayek has been named as CEO of Harry Winston.
When luxury watch and jewellery brand Harry Winston was acquired by the Swatch Group in March this year, Hayek was nominated as Harry Winston chairwoman, she now steps into the CEO role with immediate effect.
Harry Winston’s former president and chief executive Frédéric de Narp resigned in April after three years in the role.
The news that Swatch Group was to acquire a 100% stake in Harry Winston and its operations hit headlines in January 2013.
Swatch Group owns the watch and jewellery brands and all activities related to Harry Winston products. The sale did not include any of Harry Winston’s mining activities.
