ZURICH, July 14 (Reuters) - Swiss luxury group Richemont on Friday said Georges Kern, its head of watchmaking, marketing and digital, has resigned with immediate effect.
“Georges has been offered an interesting opportunity to become an entrepreneur,” Chairman Johann Rupert said in a statement. “He has had a very successful career at IWC Schaffhausen and we wish him well.”
Watchmaking - as well as marketing and digital activities - will report directly to the senior executive committee, the company said. (Reporting by Brenna Hughes Neghaiwi; Editing by Sherry Jacob-Phillips)
