The Kering Group appointed Hélène Poulit-Duquesne as the CEO of Boucheron, with an effective date of September 28. She will report to Albert Bensoussan, the CEO of Kering’s luxury, watches and jewelry division. She will pursue the development of the brand on an international scale and reinforce its position among the most prestigious high-end jewelry houses worldwide, according to the retailer.

Poulit-Duquesne was previously the international business and client development director at Cartier, a promotion she secured 13 months ago; and she has been a member of Cartier’s executive committee since 2010.

Bensoussan said, “I am pleased to welcome Hélène Poulit-Duquesne to Boucheron and the Kering Group. I am convinced that her expertise in international development, along with her extensive knowledge of the jewelry and watchmaking industries will greatly benefit Boucheron in its international reach.

Poulit-Duquesne began her career at LVMH and joined Cartier in 1998.
