Harry Winston Diamond, a specialist diamond enterprise with assets in the mining and retail segments of the diamond industry, has appointed Cyrille Baudet as group chief financial officer (CFO), replacing Alan Mayne.
With the appointment of Baudet, the structure of the finance group will also change. Wendy Kei will assume the role of CFO of the mining and rough diamond sales team based in Toronto, while Robert Scott continues as CFO of the brand retail and wholesale business based in New York. Baudet will remain based in Geneva at Harry Winston’s watch manufacturing facility for the immediate future before moving to North America later this year.
Baudet began his career with Ernst & Young in Africa and Paris auditing oil and mining companies in Africa, followed by a period with PricewaterhouseCoopers in London where he focused on software companies. He then joined Richemont International as group senior internal auditor, followed by assignments as controller for Alfred Dunhill in London and Cartier International in Paris and Geneva before becoming controller for Cartier North America based in New York. Most recently he has been the regional CFO for the Richemont Group businesses in Europe, the Middle East and South America.
