Olivier Audemars has been active in Audemars Piguet for almost 20 years: first as Chief Officer in charge of Information systems, quality management and customer service reorganisation and then as a member of the board of directors.

Founded in 1875, Audemars Piguet is an independent family business established in and continually operating from Le Brassus, in the Vallée de Joux, the cradle of watchmaking in Switzerland. It is still the oldest fine watch-making manufacturer never to have left the hands of its founding families. Audemars Piguet blends a 140-year old family business tradition with modern technologies like 3D-printing and collaborations with rappers and basketball players.

An engineer and economist by training, Olivier Audemars is member of the strategic committee and the export commission of the Canton of Vaud, as well as of the Swiss association for research in watch manufacturing.
