Jan 06, 2012,05:46 AM

All of us at Hublot are very pleased to inform you that Mr. Ricardo Guadalupe, former Managing Director of the Company, and personal friend of Mr. Jean Claude Biver with whom he has been working since nearly 20 years, has been appointed Chief Executive Officer effective January 1st 2012.

This step was planned a long time ago in consideration of Mr. Guadalupe's significant and instrumental achievements together with Mr. Jean Claude Biver since joining Hublot in 2005.


Mr. Jean Claude Biver will continue to serve Hublot as the company's Chairman of the Board, and as in the past give his precious insights into business strategy and product development. As the official spokesperson of Hublot, Mr. Biver will also coordinate communications activities with the press, collectors as well as trade and industry.


"There is a time for learning, a time for doing, a time for handing over, and a time for moving on. I've happily made it safe and sound to the hand-over stage. With the gratification of being able to hand over to a friend and colleague of more than twenty years. And happiness at the prospect of remaining part of the team on matters relating to strategy, products and corporate relations."

Ricardo, It is time to publically "take the reins" although as COO, you already had your hands full on Hublot before. MTF

It is actually a minor change...

You have the titles and what the people do with their positions. And in my point of view, the old and efficient duet Biver & Guadalupe was already working this way: one as Chairman, one as Chief Executive. That's my to cents. Anyway, it is always good new... 

Could not agree more with you!

You are 100% right: Could not agree more with you!

I am sure that your creativity won't be smaller in any respect! ....
