Kering announces that it is setting-up

Kering announces that it is setting-up, effective May 2014, a ‘Luxury – Couture & Leather Goods’  division and a ‘Luxury – Watches and Jewelry’ division, both reporting to François-Henri Pinault,  Chairman & CEO of Kering. Marco Bizzarri is appointed CEO of the ‘Luxury – Couture & Leather Goods’ division and Albert Bensoussan is appointed CEO of the ‘Luxury – Watches and Jewelry’ division. Gucci, under the responsibility of its Chairman & CEO, Patrizio di Marco, remains under François-Henri Pinault’s direct supervision.  To  foster  the  continuing  expansion  of  Kering’s  Luxury  business,  resulting  from  both  its  organic growth and  the acquisitions completed in  2012  and 2013,  the Group is  putting in place a more specialized  steering  of  its  activities.  This  will strengthen  the  monitoring  and  focus  the  business expertise  and  resources  that  the  Group  makes  available  to  its  brands  to  accelerate  their development. This realignment will be carried out  with full respect for the autonomy of each of Kering’s brands, which will remain under the operational responsibility of their respective CEOs. In the ‘Luxury – Couture & Leather Goods’ division, the CEOs of Bottega Veneta, Saint Laurent, Alexander McQueen, Balenciaga, Brioni, Christopher Kane, McQ, Stella McCartney, Tomas Maier and Sergio Rossi report to Marco Bizzarri. He remains President of Bottega Veneta, awaiting the  imminent arrival of a new CEO for the brand. In  the  ‘Luxury  –  Watches  &  Jewelry’  division,  the  CEOs  of  Boucheron,  Girard-Perregaux,  JeanRichard, Pomellato, Dodo and Qeelin report to Albert Bensoussan. Patrizio di Marco, Marco Bizzarri and Albert Bensoussan are members of Kering’s Executive Committee.  

François-Henri  Pinault  remains  Chairman  of  the  Board  of  Saint  Laurent.  ‘Saint  Laurent  is  at  a pivotal  moment  in  its  history  and  reform  as  undisputed  reference for Parisian  elegance’,  noted François-Henri  Pinault. ´Retaining  its  Chairmanship  ensures  the  preservation  of  the  unique individuality and positioning of this historical French Couture House.’ Having successfully fulfilled his mission, Alexis Babeau, Managing Director of the Luxury Division since March 2011, wished to take his career in a new direction and to leave the Group. François-Henri Pinault declared: ‘I would like to thank Alexis most warmly and to pay tribute to his decisive role, firstly at Gucci Group, then at Kering, in the development of our luxury brands, whose growth has  been  particularly  dynamic  these  last  few years.  Alexis  played  a  key  role  in  identifying  and implementing operational synergies between   our brands,  while maintaining the creative independence that makes each of them unique.’
