More Changes at the Top for Tiffany & Co.
The now LVMH-owned jeweler has a new chief commercial officer and promoted Andrea Davey to chief marketing officer.
The retailer confirmed to National Jeweler that Gavin Haig is its new chief commercial officer, joining the company from London-based Burberry to succeed Executive Vice President of Global Sales Philippe Galtié.
Haig will lead the retailer’s teams around the globe in store design and planning, sales, e-commerce, and client relations and operations.
Prior to Burberry, Haig was CEO of London-based clothing company Belstaff and, before that, spent a little over a decade with Cartier, his LinkedIn profile shows.
Galtié had been with Tiffany for six years, joining the company from Cartier.
In addition, the jeweler confirmed that it has appointed its first chief marketing officer in more than five years, naming Andrea Davey, the current senior vice president of global marketing, to the role.
According to her LinkedIn profile, Davey joined Tiffany in 2013 after four years with Procter & Gamble.
She started as a vice president for North America before being promoted to global VP of marketing. In 2016, Davey was named divisional vice president of marketing and merchandising for Tiffany’s jewelry collections.
She has held her current role since February 2018.
WWD originally reported both the news of Haig and Davey’s appointments.
Their appointments are the latest in a line of executive changes at Tiffany following its acquisition by LVMH, which is building its own management team to lead the 184-year-old jeweler.
CEO Alessandro Bogliolo, Chief Artistic Director Reed Krakoff and Chief Brand Officer Daniella Vitale left shortly after the acquisition closed in January 2021.
In March, the company named a new creative director, Ruba Abu-Nimah.
However, their optimistic outlook comes with a hint of caution due to a number of factors out of their collective control.
