Aldo Magada, 55, International Sales & Business Development Director at Breitling since 2010,
will become the next president and CEO at the head of Zenith.
He will replace Jean-Frédéric Dufour, who became last month CEO of Rolex.

Zenith, along with Hublot and TAG, owns to luxury conglomerate LVMH,
whose Horology Dept. is led by Jean-Claude Biver, famous inspirational mogul.

Biver and Magada know well each other, since Magada was Product Director
and then Marketing Director at Omega in the 90's when Biver was CEO.

I had the privilege to meet Aldo Magada in Beijing (here wearing his Chronomat GMT on rubber strap).

Cheers,
Brice

Also had a chance to meet Aldo on a couple of occasions.
A pleasant chap. Wish him all the best at Zenith.

Not sure how badly Breitling will miss him. Maybe harsh, but international sales haven't been great over the last few years for Breitling - although to be fair, sales in general haven't. Biggest winner in this latest reshuffling of executives is clearly Rolex - Dufour is a great catch.

Afaik, I can't figure this out, Roffensian.
But Zenith has a real great potential -- referring to its remarkable history -- and does need a consistent marketing policy, not achieved yet.
I bet Aldo Magada will work this out nicely...
