As was first reported by us here on Superyacht News nearly three weeks ago Edmiston & Company have now formally announced the appointment of Mark Cornell as its new CEO.
He will replace Nick Edmiston who has held the post of CEO and Chairman for the past 15 Years.
Nick Edmiston retains the role of Chairman.
Prior to joining Edmiston, Cornell 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, China and Japan.
He received his MBA from the International Institute for Management Development in Lausanne, Switzerland, in 1999.
He said, “After more than ten happy and successful years working on some of the most prestigious brands within the LVMH portfolio, I am eager to embark on a more entrepreneurial role with a new set of challenges. 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.”
