Rudy Chavez, veteran president of Baume & Mercier North America, is leaving the watch brand to become a vice president of Cartier, JCK reports. Chavez joined Baume & Mercier in 2003 as vice president of sales and president of its North American unit three years later. Neither Baume & Mercier nor Cartier officially commented, JCK added. Early last month, Cartier's parent company, Compagnie Financière Richemont, announced that CEO Stanislas de Quercize would step down for personal reasons, effective immediately.
