Johanna Lightfoot has joined UK fashion chain Topshop as its new head of merchandising, moving from Ralph Lauren, which she only joined last year. She becomes the latest in a series of luxury sector hires.
Swiss group Richemont, owner of the Cartier, Piaget and Chloé brands, among others, and the third largest luxury group in the world, has reworked the management of its watch brands Jaeger-LeCoultre and Baume & Mercier.
Coty has named Esra Erkal-Paler as chief global corporate affairs officer and executive committee member, a newly-created position in which she will lead communications strategy and responsible growth.
As it awaits the conclusion of Richemont's takeover bid, the e-commerce platform's Board of Directors has been renewed, leading to the appointment of Federico Marchetti as CEO, while President Raffaello Napoleone exits.
