STARS & STORIES @ PURPLE LOUNGE
Jean-Luc BIVER is one of those rare people who have undoubtedly influenced the course of Swiss watchmaking history.
Born in Luxembourg, his family moved to Switzerland at a young age. After high-level commercial studies, he settled in the JOUX valley, the cradle of fine watchmaking, which would decisively influence the course of his life.
His career began at AUDEMARS PIGUET, where he was introduced to the secrets of the watchmaking art and thus developed his passion for watchmaking.
He went on to work for OMEGA, BLANCPAIN and SWATCH GROUP, all brands where his ingenuity and instinct hit the mark and generated extraordinary dynamism. With this experience and boundless energy, this outstanding boss took over the reins of a small company founded in 1980, HUBLOT Geneva.
Generating impressive growth, multiplying its turnover by 8 in only 4 years, from 25 to 200 million Swiss francs, he made it the luxury brand we know today, present at several major world sporting events (EURO, World Cup) and with which great references (Usain BOLT, Bayern Munich, Juventus Turin, Pelé, the prestigious Oceanographic Museum of Monaco) have associated themselves for numerous operations in favour of charitable organisations.
Appointed President of the watch division of the LVMH group (Hublot, TAG Heuer and Zenith), Jean-Luc BIVER will end his career at the head of TAG Heuer and will retire in the autumn of 2018, after this extraordinary career of more than 40 years in watchmaking.
A unique opportunity for you to meet this passionate and exciting businessman with an extraordinary destiny.
