It was only in April this year, Kern took over as Head of watchmaking, marketing and digital at Richemont. In a recent announcement, Chairman of Richemont, Mr. Johann Rupert confirmed Georges Kern resignation with immediate effect.
Rupert added, “Georges has been offered an interesting opportunity to become an entrepreneur. He has had a very successful career at IWC Schaffhausen and we wish him well”.
Word has it that Kern is planning on heading up operations at CVC Capital Partners’ recently acquired brand Breitling. True? False? Only time will tell.
