Francesco Trapani back on top of the jewellery world
“Yes, I’m back” former head singer of the band AC/DC sings in one of the most legendary rock anthems of all time. And on a week like this, no words are more appropriate. The world of jewelry has indeed just witnessed a big comeback: Francesco Trapani, former CEO of Bulgari (managing the Roman maison between 1984 and 2011) has just taken position – along with the hedge fund Jana Partners – in the share capital and on the board of Tiffany & Co. Following the agreement signed by Jana and Tiffany, the American jewelry giant will put three new independent administrators in place, no later than March 6th, 2017. Beside Trapani, the other two are Roger Farah, former co-CEO of Tory Burch and James Lillie, former CEO of Jarden Corp. Given his legacy and his incredible knowledge, we are sure Trapani’s comeback will rock the world of jewelry to its very roots.
