Under Philippe Leopold-Metzger's leadership, Piaget has developed very successful collections of watches and jewelry, built a strong network of 100 stores worldwide and invested significantly in its two fully integrated manufactures.
Mr. Johann Rupert, Richemont Executive Chairman commented “On a day to day basis we will lose one of our most experimented and senior colleague this Spring. Philippe Leopold-Metzger has contributed so much to the development of his Maison and Richemont as a whole during his tenure as Chief Executive of Piaget. I want to thank him most sincerely for his significant involvement in transforming the Maison into the much broader-based business that we see today. We wish Philippe every success and a long, active and happy life. His knowledge of the business will be extremely hard to replace although we will continue to draw on his expertise in the future”.

Chabi has already had a strong impact, in particular in redeveloping successfully Piaget's jewelry business and repositioning the brand. While capitalising on its history and unique heritage, as well as leveraging its development strategy across the world and launch a new managerial dynamic. She brings a unique perspective to the Maison Piaget thanks to her overall vision that is both strategic and operational.
