Born in Morocco, Mr Bédos lived in France and England until 2012. He now resides in Montreal, Canada with his wife and four children. He is a skilled brand builder within the luxury retail sector, who brings a very relevant background having spent his entire career for more than twenty-five years within the high-end watch and jewellery industry.
In 2012, Jean-Christophe Bédos, formerly head of international jewellery house, Boucheron, took the helm as Birks’ President and Chief Executive Officer, refining the brand’s focus on fine jewellery and setting the gold standard for private label designs. Bédos spearheaded a focus on Canadian pride through an exploration of the country’s vast natural and cultural landscapes. Spotlighting Canadian-sourced gemstones and designs influenced by nature, Birks unveiled a new corporate identity in 2013.
