Thomas Zettler, European manager of Marchon, has left after a little more than one year in the job. Andy Skidmore, who had been running the UK subsidiary until 18 months ago to move to Marchon's headquarters in New York, is taking over Zettler's responsibilities, at least for the moment. No formal announcement has been made and it could not be determined at press time whether he was planning to move to the European office in Rotterdam. Meanwhile company executives deny a new spate of rumors that Marchon is being sold to Luxottica. Another rumor, according to which De Rigo would be acquiring Lantis Eyewear, has also been firmly denied.
