Bernhard van Ommen has left Cecop to become the new managing director of De Rigo UK. The Dutch executive, who replaces Paul Clapton, spent more than a decade with the international buying group, based in Madrid, where he was in charge of international business development, opening new markets. In this capacity, he ran Cecop's U.K. office for a while. At De Rigo, he has reportedly been charged with building up the distribution, focusing on independent opticians. Cecop is looking for van Ommen's successor.
