By the 1980s, the company was growing rapidly and needed to expand in order to survive. This immense task was left to the son-in-law of Raymond Weil, Oliver Bernheim, who joined the company in 1982 and modernised both the structure and the organisation. He developed a number of markets and also overhauled the communications and marketing departments within the company. Bernheim helped to transform the company into a family organisation and in 1996 he became the CEO and company President.
