Richemont’s Leadership Shift: Ferla Leads Cartier, Rénier To Van Cleef & Arpels

After nine years under Cyrille Vigneron, Richemont has appointed Louis Ferla as the new CEO of Cartier. Ferla, previously head of Vacheron Constantin, is known for his operational expertise and successful leadership, bringing Vacheron Constantin into the billionaires’ club of Swiss watchmaking.

Nicolas Bos, Richemont’s new group CEO, will work closely with Ferla. Bos, formerly the CEO of Van Cleef & Arpels, is recognized for his visionary branding skills, promising a complementary leadership dynamic to drive Cartier’s continued success.

In another key move, Mrs. Catherine Rénier will take over as CEO of Van Cleef & Arpels, replacing Bos. This leadership reshuffle reflects Richemont’s strategy to optimize its top management and ensure continued growth and innovation across its prestigious brands.
