Tiffany & Co. today announced it has named Frederic Cumenal as Executive Vice President effective March 10, 2011. Mr. Cumenal, 51, will be responsible for the company's businesses in Asia, Japan, Europe and Emerging Markets, and will report to chairman and CEO Michael J. Kowalski.

Mr. Cumenal joins Tiffany from the LVMH Group where most recently he was president and chief executive officer of Moet & Chandon, S.A.

"Frederic brings a wealth of luxury brand experience and a highly developed global perspective that will prove especially important as Tiffany's growth continues outside of the Americas," said Mr. Kowalski.
