Man of the Year: Jean-Claude Biver

Today in Nyon, Hublot’s CEO was awarded a new honour from specialized journalists. He was elected “Man of the Year” by Eugenio Zigliotto (Orologi da Polso, Italy), Gabriel Tortella (Tribune des Arts, Switzerland), Stephan Ciejka (La Revue des Montres, France), Pierre Jacques (GMT, Switzerland) and Grégory Pons (Business Montres, watchmaking planet).

This award acknowledges his authenticity, his availability, his reliability, his ingenuity, his energy, his friendship and his creativity. Because although the year 2008 was marked by an extraordinary growth and the takeover of Hublot by the LVMH group, Jean- Claude Biver has stayed on course and remained true to himself. For all these reasons, these editors of specialised magazines have unanimously decided to award him this prize for 2009.
