Bedos said of his departure: "I am proud and delighted to have successfully achieved the objectives that had been set for Boucheron. After seven years, the time has come for me to pursue new challenges."
Bouissou has previously served as managing director of Berluti at luxury goods group Möet Hennessy Louis Vuitton (LVMH). Prior to Berluti, Bouissou served as business unit manager of the beauty and skincare products at Christian Dior.
"We are glad to welcome Pierre to Boucheron and PPR," said Alexis Babeau, deputy CEO of PPR Luxury activities, owner of Boucheron.
"With Pierre I am confident we have someone with the skills and experience necessary to build on the work done so far and accelerate the positive trends that have already been put in place. For the past seven years, Jean-Christophe Bedos has dedicated himself to returning Boucheron to a position of health and growth. Under his leadership, Boucheron was re-launched on the international stage as one of the world’s most prestigious jewelers. We thank Jean-Christophe for his significant contribution and wish him the very best as he now turns to new challenges", Babeau added.
