What you do may not be so important, but it is very important that you do it well. (my variation of a saying by Gandhi)

Did his name ever show up on the Forum? And if so, what role did he play for the Forum?And who the h.. is Edouard Maulbon and what might be his significance for this Forum?. Did his name ever show up here? Please inform me.What I am trying to say is that the fast change of responsible jobs for IWC over the world is done by the company as it is done by most of the multinationals worldwide. But referring to these important business men as possibly significant for the forum is, I guess one bridge too far. It reminds me to a dinner where the president of the USA was sitting next to a person, wearing a top gun IWC pilot watch. The president asks : " Are you a top gun pilot"?The man answers, "no sir, unfortunately, I have no license to fly a military aircraft"The president replies :"I understand, I even was not in the Army,but if you have one, where can I get such watch?"The man says : "Mr. President, if you like this watch, it is easy. You don't have to be a US pilot, you don'thave to know where this watch was made. You don't have to know its history. There are a few idealists who debate on the pro's and con's of this watch but they are not important for the company, which makes these magnificent timepieces.The president answers : "I understand completely. And before you ask me to wear such watch at official meetings, the answer is yes, I will roll up my sleeve. Did you say IWC? Is there any dealer in Washington?Kind regards,Adrian,(alwaysiwc)

Richemont asked Gianfranco to make the move and from a carrel perspective it was an offer he couldn't refuse.Effective April 1, the new head of IWC's sales and operations in North America will be Edouard Maulbon D'Arbaumont, who previously was (and technically currently is) head of IWC Singapore. Welcome Edouard!I guess it's a little like "the king is dead, long live the king!" I'll miss GF but am looking forward to working with Eduoard.
