Raymond Weil Olivier Bernheim
Some years after the creation of RAYMOND WEIL and on his father-in-law's request, Mr. Raymond Weil, Olivier Bernheim joined the watch company in 1982.
Born in 1954, graduated in Law and from the Business School of Strasbourg, Olivier Bernheim began his career at Kronenbourg, before joining Unilever in Paris, as Marketing Development Manager.
It's through his dynamism and visionary entrepreneurial spirit, but also his ability to maintain privileged relations with RAYMOND WEIL's partners, that Olivier Bernheim, President and CEO of the Brand, restructured, developed and consolidated the company's presence at the international level, while all along preserving its family identity. He devotes a large part of his time to travelling the world, in order to ensure the smooth development of the Brand in the world of luxury.
Like Mr. Weil, Olivier Bernheim is a well-informed music lover and his passion for the world of the Arts and Culture has led him to orientate his communications strategy towards this universe.
Among his several achievements, the launch of an internal Research & Development and Prototypes at RAYMOND WEIL in 1999. Olivier Bernheim decided to create this department to help RAYMOND WEIL enjoy full control of the watch-design process. By embracing the latest technological innovations, R&D has been responsible for numerous RAYMOND WEIL innovations.
Of both Swiss and French nationality, Olivier Bernheim married the elder daughter of M. Weil, Diana, a professional pianist, with whom he has three children: Elie, Pierre and Noémi. He devotes his spare time to horse riding, golf and tennis. Elie (Marketing Director) and Pierre (Sales Director), who are working in the company today, are assuring the continuity of a heritage, which is based upon watchmaking know-how and the ongoing adherence to the values of the Brand.
At the time of the Brand’s creation in 1976, Raymond Weil wanted to bring luxury Swiss watchmaking within the reach of a wider public. This visionary approach, always dear to the three generations, has enabled the Brand to develop internationally, within the space of only a few decades.Find out more >
