The company, owned by the French luxury conglomerate, could soon incorporate Jenny Galimberti, global director of communications and events at Louis Vuitton, as its CEO.
J.W. Anderson looks for a new chief executive officer at home. The British company, owned by the French luxury conglomerate LVMH, is in talks with the chairman to incorporate Jenny Galimberti, global director of communications and events at Louis Vuitton, as CEO, according to WWD.
The position is vacant since the beginning of the year, as Simon Whitehouse left the business after three years spearheading the company. Now, J.W. Anderson seeks to incorporate a manager from LVMH.
To replace Galimberti in front of the Louis Vuitton communication department, LVMH is considering several names. The one that sounds with more options is Stefano Cantino, former director of strategic marketing at Prada Group.
J.W. Anderson focuses its distribution in the wholesale channel, in department store chains like Barneys, Opening Ceremony, Selfridges or Harrods, among others. LVMH acquired a stake in the British firm in September 2013, months before Anderson’s appointment as creative director of Loewe. The French group owns 46% of shares.
