Bremont Appoints Industry Veteran Davide Cerrato as CEO

Bremont appoints Davide Cerrato as CEO, bringing extensive watch industry experience.

Bremont, the UK’s largest manufacturer of luxury watches, has appointed Davide Cerrato as CEO and a member of the Board. Cerrato is a seasoned industry veteran with extensive experience in branding, product design and development, supply-chain management, and production. His appointment is expected to boost Bremont’s in-house capabilities and drive future growth.

Cerrato’s career includes senior positions at some of the most renowned brands in the watch industry, including Tudor, Montblanc, and Panerai. At Tudor, Cerrato oversaw the relaunch of the brand and the design of its iconic Black Bay watch. Later, as Managing Director of Montblanc’s watch division, he created the unique 1858 Geosphere watch, which established the company’s watch brand identity. Cerrato most recently served as CEO and Creative Director of HYT.

Following a £48.4M ($59M) investment by Bill Ackman and Hellcat LP announced in January, Bremont is now well positioned to execute its future plans for growth. Bremont Co-Founder Nick English said, “We are thrilled to have recruited a world-class CEO to support our ambitious vision for Bremont.” Co-Founder Giles English added, “Davide has amazing, complementary experience and is a great cultural fit. We are delighted to welcome him to the Bremont family.”

Cerrato is equally excited to join Bremont, saying, “I have long admired what Nick and Giles have managed to achieve in a relatively short space of time. The brand has been on an amazing journey, and I’m looking forward to working with the entire team to take it to the next level.” Investor Bill Ackman remarked, “Davide’s passion for the industry, wealth of expertise, and great vision will help enable Bremont to become a global leader in watchmaking.”

Bremont’s future looks bright with this latest appointment. “We believe a leader of Davide’s caliber at this stage will ensure Bremont’s on-going success and place among the pantheon of the world’s iconic watchmakers,” said a Hellcat spokesman. With Cerrato at the helm, Bremont is well-positioned to continue its journey as a global leader in luxury watches.
