“From the moment I met Jean-Claude Biver, I knew it was the start of a long friendship.
It was at the launch event of the partnership of Hublot as Official watch of Manchester United in 2008 that my team and I first met Jean-Claude and his team. A warm and witty man, we instantly felt welcome and at ease as he entertained us with his unique sense of humor. In fact we had such a great time that since that day, every time Hublot hosts an event, everyone wants to attend! We look at the time we spend with Hublot as a moment of fun and pleasure and never as a time of laborious work.
Jean-Claude and I both share the same management philosophy, the same level of confidence in our team and the same unwavering passion for what we do. If you look at Manchester United and Hublot you’ll see the same values instilled in our teams, and from the results of both our teams, we can say that it proved us quite right!
On a lighter note, Jean-Claude and I also share a mad passion for fine wine. When I was visiting the Hublot booth at the Baselworld Fair in 2010, we had a wonderful evening with some VIP customers and he offered me a bottle of Château d’Yquem from my birth year. I was very touched and humbled by this gesture.
Jean-Claude, We share so much more than just a business partnership. I am proud to call you a friend.”
