Loro PianaLuxury Italian clothing and textile company Loro Piana has appointed Fabio d’Angelantonio as CEO, effective September 1. He succeeds Matthieu Brisset.

“I am excited to have Fabio take the helm at Loro Piana,” said Antoine Arnault, chairman of Loro Piana. “He has a great track record in developing brands, retail operations and people across the globe. He also brings a warm personality and Italian touch to continue the development of Loro Piana at the very high end of ready-to-wear and textile products.”

“Three years after the acquisition of Loro Piana, I think it is safe to say that Matthieu Brisset and I have accomplished the mission given to us by Sergio and Pierluigi Loro Piana: to integrate their exceptional company smoothly into LVMH Group while respecting at all times the values of the brand and the great people working there,” continued Arnault. “I would like to particularly thank Matthieu for his dedication, his great human values, the quality of the results achieved, and the passion with which he managed this complex integration and positioned the company for the future. He is a key asset for LVMH, and his new position within the Group will be announced shortly.”

An Italian native, d’Angelantonio most recently served as chief marketing officer of Luxottica Group and president of Sunglass Hut, a retail division of the Italian eyewear company. Prior to joining Luxottica, he held several senior sales and marketing positions at Editions Hemma in Brussels, then in Milan at Ciaoweb – Internet portal of the Fiat Group – and Indesit Company.
