Thomas Sabo’s wholesale director for the UK and Ireland, Nick Callegari has been appointed as the new commercial director for luxury watch brand, Tag Heuer.
Callegari, who worked for jewellery brand Thomas Sabo for over three and half years is now responsible for Tag Heuer’s UK and Irish markets.
This is the third high-profile departure from Thomas Sabo in recent months, following managing director Jon Crossick who left the company in April 2018 and head of marketing and PR, Louisa Hopwood who departed a couple of weeks ago.
In a statement released today (June 1) the brand has appointed Darrell Granton as the new head of wholesale for the UK and Ireland, replacing Callegari and Tony Björk will become the new managing director of the UK and Ireland, replacing Jon Crossick.
Björk, who has worked with Thomas Sabo for five years and is currently the managing director for Scandinavia, will add the UK and Ireland to his portfolio.
Björk said: “I’m very excited to be joining the UK, after having worked for the brand for the last few years, I really believe we have strong foundations; which can only continue to grow, and with the launch of our autumn/ winter collection in the next few weeks, we will be putting various plans into place in order to continue to develop the brand in the marketplace, so stay tuned.”
Founder Thomas Sabo added: “I’m very pleased that Tony has decided to add the UK to his portfolio – he has been an excellent leader in the Scandinavian marketplace, and with Tony, I see the firm in a strong position for its future growth in the UK too.”
