 Fawaz Gruosi, the founder of De Grisogono, has stepped down from his position as board director and left the company, the Swiss-based jeweler said.

Gruosi had been gradually shifting away from day-to-day operations for some time, De Grisogono added. Fawaz’s departure leaves newly appointed CEO Céline Assimon in charge, said Elmar Wiederin, chairman of the De Grisogono board.

The jeweler also appointed Keith Rosen as general manager for the Americas. He will oversee operations in the US, Canada, Latin America and the Caribbean, and assist the company with its expansion plans in the Americas region. He was previously North America vice president for Piaget, a Richemont-owned watch and jewelry brand.
