American website TrueFacet.com, specialised in pre-owned jewellery and watches, has announced the arrival of a high-calibre manager within its board of directors. François Kress, CEO for Carolina Herrera, is a professional with more than 20 years' experience in the luxury and distribution industries.
"François Kress will contribute his significant luxury industry know-how to help TrueFacet become world leader in luxury jewellery, and to add to the brand's partnerships in the jewellery sector," the website stated in a press release.
François Kress was put in charge of Carolina Herrera last April. He was formerly Global President for Stuart Weitzman, the luxury women's footwear manufacturer acquired by American company Coach.
