by Malcolm MacLean
News I’ve been awaiting for a while now as Nicholas Edmiston confirms the appointment of Mark Cornell as CEO of Edmiston & Company.
Prior to joining Edmiston, Mark spent over a decade with LVMH, most recently serving as the President and Chief Executive Officer of Moet Hennessy USA since 2006. Prior to that, he served as the Chief Executive of Krug Champagne for four years, overseeing strategic development of the brand globally. Cornell’s career spans many countries, including the United States, the United Kingdom, France, Asia and Japan. He received his MBA from the International Institute for Management Development in Lausanne, Switzerland, in 1999.
Nicholas remains Chairman of the company and says, “I am thrilled we have been able to recruit one of the most accomplished luxury executives in the marketplace to lead Edmiston into the next stage of growth.”
Says Mark: “With burgeoning global wealth, Edmiston remains a premier business in an industry that is poised for even greater growth. I look forward to expanding the company’s footprint and burnishing its brand internationally.”
