Buccellati appoints Nicolas Luchsinger as CEO
Jewellery maison Buccellati has appointed Nicolas Luchsinger as its new CEO, starting from 2 April 2024.
Luchsinger, currently president Asia Pacific at Van Cleef and Arpels, has matured an “extensive experience” of 17 years in Van Cleef and Arpels, covering different managerial roles as retail director and heritage director at HQ and market level.
Previously, Luchsinger also worked for almost 10 years at Christie’s.
On the same date, Gianluca Brozzetti, current CEO of Buccellati, will end his mandate as CEO and will remain board director in Buccellati Holding Italia Spa, with the title of executive vice president.
Brozzetti has led the Buccellati Group for the last 10 years, leading its integration into Richemont in 2019 and playing a crucial role in developing the maison as a “much larger jewellery and silver worldwide player”.
In his new role, Brozzetti will facilitate a complete handover of the business to Luchsinger, retaining a direct responsibility in the project of manufacturing expansion and consolidation.
Brozzetti will also keep the Maison’s representative role in the Industry Associations and in the partnership with Scuola Orafa Ambrosiana.
Bucellati said: “We wish Nicolas all the best for his new role and express thanks to Gianluca for the passionate leadership with which he has led the Maison so far.”
