Jimmy Choo announces new chief exec

Luxury footwear brand Jimmy Choo has named Pierre Denis as its new chief executive, succeeding former chief executive Joshua Schulman, who left the business at the beginning of the year.

Denis has experience in the luxury sector having worked at luxury label Christian Dior Couture and most recently holding the position of chief executive at John Galliano from 2008.

Chief executive of Jimmy Choo’s parent company Labelux, Reinhard Mieck said: “We are delighted to welcome an executive of Pierre’s calibre to the Labelux family.

“With his unrivalled experience of the international luxury sector and a 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.”

Tamara Mellon, the founder and chief creative officer of Jimmy Choo, left the business in November last year, six months after the brand was sold to the luxury firm Labelux Group in a deal valued at £549m.

Her departure was followed by that of chief executive Joshua Schulman who left the business at the start of 2012.

The brand saw pre-tax profits climb by almost 20% to £26.9m in the year to December 31, 2011 as turnover shot up by 34%.
