Nadja Swarovski,

is the daughter of Helmut Swarovski, president and chairman of the board of directors of D. Swarovski & Co. Born in Germany, raised in Austria and schooled in Europe (Germany, France, Spain and Italy) and the United States, she is the fifth generation of the Swarovskis to work for the family business.
As Vice President of Communications, Nadja initiated and set up the Corporate Communications Unit London in November 2000, where the concept of the Creative Service Center and Communication merged. While continuing to rediscover and support talent in the fashion and jewelry industries, Nadja initiated the revival of the chandelier, thus moving into the Home Décor/Lifestyle arena. The music and movie industries have also become areas of concentration, where Swarovski crystals allow the stars to shine even more brightly.
