Tiffany & Co. said Tuesday that it has named Frederic Cumenal as president and also appointed him to a newly-created seat on the company’s board of directors.
Cumenal, who was executive vice president responsible for international retail, joined the luxury retail jeweler in March 2011 as executive vice president with oversight for the Asia-Pacific, Japan, Europe and emerging markets. In 2012, the Americas region was added.
Prior to joining Tiffany he held senior leadership positions at LVMH Group, most recently as president and chief executive officer of Moët & Chandon.
“Frederic has made important contributions to the operational and strategic development of our business,” said Michael J. Kowalski, Tiffany chairman and CEO. “He has brought a global luxury perspective to our brand management initiatives and, in particular, has led the evolution of our regional organizations to support our continued worldwide expansion.”
In his new role, Cumenal, 54, will retain his regional responsibilities and will assume responsibility for Tiffany’s design, merchandising and marketing functions. He will continue to report directly to Kowalski.
