Former Galliano MD joins Jimmy Choo

A former John Galliano executive heads to Jimmy Choo in the fashion world’s latest appointment.

Pierre Denis, managing director at Galliano since 2008, has been named as Jimmy Choo’s new chief executive officer.

Denis takes up a position left vacant by former Jimmy Choo CEO Joshua Schulman, who departed along with brand founder Tamara Mellon in November 2011 following the Labelux group’s takeover in May.

‘We are delighted to welcome an executive of Pierre's calibre to the Labelux family,’ Labelux CEO Reinhard Mieck said in a statement. ‘With his unrivalled experience of the international luxury sector and keen understanding of our business, Pierre is without question the right person to drive forward the Jimmy Choo business and exploit the enormous growth potential of what is an exceptional brand.’


Denis will be tasked with expanding the brand’s presence in China and emerging markets. Before joining Galliano, Denis worked with LVMH’s perfumes and cosmetics division.
