I worked at Harry Winston Diamond
Pros – Made a killing on Retail. Sold the brand to the powerful Swatch group and netted $1BN for the Harry Winston brand. Brilliant move by the Chairman and CEO. Excellent knowledge of the Diamond industry. Nice capable people.
Cons – Absent Chairman and CEO, he is often traveling to remote areas. All the good jobs are now in the NWT - not where real talent wants to work and live. Many of us in Toronto felt little choice inoxing to keep our jobs and were packed up and shipped off!
Advice to Senior Management – Split the Chair and CEO duties. Maybe it is time for Robert Gannicott to retire and focus as the non-executive Chairman.
