Citizen Watch America has formally announced the promotion of Joy Tarbox to the role of managing director of the group’s Luxury Brands Division.

She joined Bulova in 2016.
“We are continuously building and strengthening our Luxury Brands division and with that comes a dedicated staff for sales, marketing and customer care as well as a dedicated process at our warehouse for these brands. Joy’s expertise is integral to leading the growth of this division,” says Jeffrey Cohen, president of Citizen Watch America.
