RAPAPORT... Albert Bensoussan has stepped down as CEO of Kering’s luxury watches and jewelry division, the French retail group said Wednesday.

Bensoussan joined the owner of Gucci and Yves Saint Laurent in 2014, taking responsibility for its jewelry brands Boucheron, Pomellato, DoDo and Qeelin, and its watch collections Girard-Perregaux and Ulysse Nardin. He previously headed jewelry and watches at LVMH Moët Hennessy Louis Vuitton for 16 years. 

“Albert Bensoussan has decided to pursue a personal project outside of Kering,” the company told Rapaport News Wednesday. “Kering thanks Albert warmly for his contribution over the last five years as the head of the watches and jewelry division.”

Correction, November 27, 2019: An earlier version of this article contained incorrect data about Kering’s 2018 jewelry revenue.
