Former Lanvin CEO hired as "fundamental step" in brand’s development.
Buccellati has announced the appointment of Thierry Andretta as its new chief executive.
Andretta has long-term experience in the luxury goods sector, having worked with brands including Alexander McQueen, Stella McCartney and Gucci Group. He stepped down from his position as chief executive of luxury label Lanvin in April, having held the role for four years.
Italian private equity firm Clessidra is understood to have acquired a majority stake in Buccellati earlier this year. Its president and chief executive Claudio Sposito said: “The appointment of the new managing director, Mr. Thierry Andretta, at the operating top of Buccellati represents an important and fundamental step in the company’s development plan."
