Richemont appoints Patricia Gandji to senior executive committee
Richemont has appointed Patricia Gandji to its senior executive committee in her capacity as chief people officer and chief executive of regions.
With nearly 30 years’ managerial experience and international exposure in the luxury sector, Gandji began her career in the fashion industry in Italy and in Germany where she held various operational and strategic positions.
She joined Richemont in 2007 and then held a number of key roles within Cartier before joining Richemont in Geneva as group chief executive of regions in 2017. This was followed by an expansion of the role in 2020 to include the responsibilities of chief people officer.
Richemont chairman Johann Rupert said: “Patricia brings not only her deeply human perspective but also her expansive knowledge of the regions and understanding of our Maisons. Patricia takes an empathetic approach to leadership, a quality that she is successfully promoting within Richemont and that is essential to our customer-focused mindset.
“This strategic appointment is in recognition of the strong value Patricia has created leading our five regions and developing our human resources capabilities across the group. It also reaffirms the importance of both people and regional matters as Richemont continues its transformation journey.”
