He spent 16 years with Bulgari.

NEW YORK — Tiffany & Co. has named Alessandro Bogliolo, who spent 16 years with Bulgari SpA, as its new CEO.

He’s expected to assume the role by Oct. 2, the company (NYSE: TIF) said in a press release. He’ll also join the board of directors.

Bogliolo, 52, is a veteran luxury industry executive whose roles at Bulgari included chief operating officer and executive vice president for jewelry, watches and accessories. Most recently, he has served as CEO of global apparel and accessories company Diesel SpA.

“Alessandro has a well-deserved reputation for creativity and execution, having previously led a number of international brands to success and improved performance,” said Michael J. Kowalski, chairman and interim CEO of Tiffany. “I also believe that his vision and team-oriented approach make him an ideal fit with Tiffany’s long-standing values.”

Kowalski took on the interim role in February following the resignation of Frederic Cumenal. The board said at the time that it had been “disappointed by recent financial results.”

Independent Director Rose Marie Bravo, speaking as the chairwoman of the board’s search committee, said of Bogliolo, “We are delighted to have been able to attract a leader who has the global experience and passion for our brand and heritage to drive extraordinary design, outstanding customer experience and capital efficiency. He is a proven executive with the skills necessary to accelerate revenue growth and increase value for all shareholders during this next chapter for Tiffany.”
Bogliolo said he is “excited by the opportunity to lead this remarkable company.”

“Tiffany, with its legendary history, has always represented luxury, style, and an extraordinary standard of quality and excellence, and I look forward to working with the Board and the rest of the Tiffany team to build on this foundation,” he said. “It is my goal to continue to delight our customers with compelling product offerings, supported by best-in-class operations.”

Wilkerson Testimonials | Sollberger’s

Going Out of Business Is an Emotional Journey. Wilkerson Is There to Make It Easier.

Jaki Cowan, the owner of Sollberger’s in Ridgeland, MS, decided the time was right to close up shop. The experience, she says, was like going into the great unknown. There were so many questions about the way to handle the store’s going-out-of-business sale. Luckily for Cowan, Wilkerson made the transition easier and managed everything, from marketing to markdowns.

“They think of everything that you don’t have the time to think of,” she says of the Wilkerson team that was assigned to manage the sale. And it was a total success, with financial goals met by Christmas with another sale month left to go.

Wilkerson even had a plan to manage things while Covid-19 restrictions were still in place. This included limiting the number of shoppers, masking and taking temperatures upon entrance. “We did everything we could to make the staff and public feel as safe as possible.”

Does she recommend Wilkerson to other retailers thinking of retiring, liquidating or selling excess merchandise? Absolutely. “If you are considering going out of business, it’s obviously an emotional journey. But truly rest assured that you’re in good hands with Wilkerson.”
