March 2012 : Ricardo Guadalupe, Wilhelm Schmid, Patrick Kury, Marc Gläser
Wilhelm Schmid took over in January as CEO of the beautiful German mechanical watch brand, A. Lange & Söhne, after Aston Martin enthusiast Jerôme Lambert, (CEO of Jaeger LeCoultre which also belongs to the Richemont group) organised a major overhaul in the company last year. Wilhelm Schmid previously made the motors at BMW purr.
Patrick Kury is completing in April a six-month period as acting CEO at Eterna and Porsche Design Timepieces, after which he is liable to be confirmed in this role. Having occupied several strategic functions of a mainly technical nature within the company since 2005, the father of Spherodrive technology imposed this warm-up on himself in order to take things step by step.
Marc Gläser has benefitted from a structural reorganisation at Maurice Lecroix, of which the majority capital share was acquired last year by the DKSH group. Previously international Sales Director, Marc Gläser has now been appointed Managing Director, a newly created position in which he reports directly to the DKSH group.
