Breguet promotes Lionel Marca to chief executive


It is rare today for the CEO of a major watch brand to have worked his way up from the bench, but that is precisely what Lionel Marca has done on his ascent to the top job at Breguet, where he will run the maison under the presidency of Marc A. Hayek.

Mr Marca’s career began in the 1980s in the Jura Mountains where he was a watchmaking and repair apprentice before joining Swatch Group in 1992 at Frédéric Piguet.


He later moved to ETA Manufacture Horlogère, where he helped develop and improve several watchmaking complications while assisting with quality control and production improvements for a number of other group brands.

He was hired by Mr Hayek, president of Breguet and Blancpain, where he has worked for almost 20 years combining product development, operations and executive leadership.
