Born in Switzerland, I have always been passionate about watches and have been fortunate enough to spend my entire career in the industry I love: luxury watches and jewelry. Product Development & Management has taught me about the making of fine products and how every detail counts. Traveling extensively in North America, Europe and Asia has shown me how the products are received by the luxury-buying clientele.
Understanding what is happening at each point of sale, in each submarket is crucial for a successful distribution. Forming close ties with storeowners and their sales associates is a key ingredient for success.
The Internet has changed the way we do business and how clients shop these days. However, I believe that the traditional brick and mortar store still offers huge opportunities, especially for watches and jewelry, which are about the touch, love and passion.
