Burberry taps former Belstaff CEO Gavin Haig for Chief Commercial Officer role
Burberry has announced that Gavin Haig, who was the chief executive of luxury retailer Belstaff until January, will join the company in the newly created position of chief commercial officer.
The appointment will be made effective on 23 April, with Haig taking up responsibility for all regions in which Burberry operates. He will report to Marco Gobbetti, CEO of Burberry.
Gobbetti commented: “I am delighted to announce the appointment of Gavin Haig to the newly created position of Chief Commercial Officer. Gavin has extensive experience in global luxury retail, which will be invaluable as we implement our strategy.”
Haig spent four years at Belstaff until earlier this year, when he announced he was stepping down “by mutual consent” following the brand’s buyout in November. He is an experienced executive, having spent a decade at Cartier, where he led commercial teams globally as international managing director.
He previously held senior positions at Alfred Dunhill and Wedgwood.
