After the 15 years of her tenure as the President and CEO of La Fondation de la Haute Horlogerie, Fabienne Lupo decided to leave her post. This is especially interesting considering that Watches & Wonders has just announced its debut in Shanghai.
“After 15 years of an exciting and passionate journey, which has recently reached new heights through the creation of a second watch fair in Geneva in collaboration with new partner brands, it is time for me to develop new projects. I leave the Foundation knowing it is more sounder than ever before, thanks to the unwavering support of its founders and partner brands. Now installed in the city center in the Arcades des Arts, formerly known as the Pont de la Machine, the Foundation de la Haute Horlogerie organises thematic and cultural exhibitions to promote Fine Watchmaking. Watches & Wonders has become a truly global ecosystem, both physically and digitally, offering events around the world. Moreover and most importantly, Watches & Wonders is the reference in Fine Watchmaking fairs (previously SIHH) for the entire international watchmaking community (professionals, media, collectors and final clients), allowing Geneva to affirm its position as a cornerstone for Swiss watchmaking,” commented Fabienne Lupo.
Emmanuel Perrin, member of the Management Board of the FHH, will ensure the role of interim President and CEO, the functions previously held by Fabienne Lupo.
