Guillaume Tetu has just been named COO of Ralph Lauren Watches and Jewelry (RLWJ).

Tetu worked for TAG Heuer early in his career, then co-founded the luxury watch brand Hautlence.

He exited Hautlence to become the head of product development RLWJ, working with Luc Perramond, who stepped down from his position as CEO and president of RLWJ.

I spoke with Mr. Tetu on the phone today and he said, “I have been working closely with Ralph Lauren and his team in New York on product development, and I feel very confident about the bright future for the company.”
