The luxury industry, both witness and protagonist of global market evolutions, is poised to welcome one of its veterans, Arnaud Vidal, as the CEO of Qeelin for the EMEA and North America regions. With over 25 years of experience, Vidal brings invaluable expertise to a position that demands strategic vision and a keen understanding of the international market.

His rich and varied career is marked by influential roles at major luxury groups such as LVMH, Richemont, Ralph Lauren, and Chanel.

Vidal has demonstrated particular competence in general management, international sales leadership, subsidiary management, touching on all aspects of the business from sales to finance, communication, and public relations.

His specialty in luxury watches and jewelry, as well as in the wine and spirits, fashion, and accessories sectors, showcases remarkable versatility and an ability to adapt to various segments of luxury.

At Mozart Timepieces, Vidal led a luxury watch distribution company, refining the company’s approach to exclusive distribution in France, Belgium, Luxembourg, and the Netherlands. His ability to represent independent Swiss brands such as Vulcain, Anonimo, Rebellion, and RJ (formerly Romain Jerome) underscores his aptitude for valuing and elevating niche brands in competitive markets.

His tenure as CEO for the ZENITH branch of LVMH Swiss Manufactures SA reaffirmed his expertise in high watchmaking, a sector known for its precision and excellence, qualities that Vidal seems to embody professionally.

Leading Champagne Grand Cru BINET, he explored the world of prestigious champagnes, complementing his experience in luxury beverages.

Vidal’s previous experiences as Vice President at Ralph Lauren-Richemont and as CEO at Audemars Piguet France demonstrate his ability to lead large-scale operations, confirming his status as a seasoned leader capable of navigating the unique challenges of the luxury sector.

His academic background at ESCP Business School with an MBA in Business, as well as at the University of Oxford in Law, combines with a remarkable professional journey to create an impressive profile of an accomplished director.

His legal background, coupled with his service as a lieutenant in the Air Force, gives Vidal a discipline and rigor that are essential for leadership in an ever-evolving market.

As Arnaud Vidal embarks on his tenure at Qeelin, he carries with him the expectations of a market that rewards innovation and tradition.

His journey speaks to his ability to embrace and inspire excellence — a quality that Qeelin, and surely its clients, will appreciate and benefit from.

We extend our congratulations to Arnaud Vidal on this new professional venture.

His vast experience and commitment to excellence are valuable assets that will further Qeelin’s mission in the luxury industry.

Good luck, Mr. Vidal, on this ambitious next step.
