Christophe ArtauxChief Executive Officer, Qeelin

Christophe Artaux joined Qeelin, Kering-owned fine jewellery house, as CEO in November 2014.

Previously, Artaux had worked for LVMH Group for over 13 years after a career start in finance and operations.

Under the LVMH Watch & Jewelry division, he had held senior management roles such as CFO of LVMH Watch & Jewelry North America, CEO of Omas (Italian luxury writing instruments), Managing Director of TAG Heuer Continental Europe, Global Deputy Managing Director of Dom Perignon and International Sales Director of Hublot.

For the past 10 years, Artaux has been a pivot of Qeelin’s brand repositioning as a modern Chinese fine jewellery brand and its global retail footprint expansion with a focus on Greater China. Qeelin is the first Chinese jeweller opening a boutique at the prestigious Place Vendôme and unveiled a new flagship in Tokyo Ginza in celebration of its 20th anniversary in 2024.
