Rimowa hires Nest designer Rocky Jacob as Chief Product Officer
Rimowa this month appointed Rocky Jacob as Chief Product Officer, marking as the second major appointment this month for the German luggage producer.
In mid-June, the LVMH-owned brand hired Hector Muelas as Chief Brand Officer to oversee the brand’s global marketing and communications.
Rocky Jacob, Rimowa’s newest addition, heads to the German brand from Nest, the Alphabet-owned home automation producer that created the “learning” digital thermostat that adjusts room temperature based on patterns. At Nest, he served Head of Industrial Design, and now he will serve as an advisor, according to his LinkedIn page.
Prior to joining Nest, Rocky served as Lead Industrial Designer at HTC, served as an Industrial Designer at Ideo and Ident Technology, and operated his own independent design studio as an independent contractor.
At Rimowa, Rocky will oversee the brand’s design, production and engineering.
