Giorgio Armani reshuffles management

Giorgio Armani has made three senior management changes, after the 75-year-old founding designer revealed that he would ease his workload following an illness.

From January 1, Gianni Gerbotto, general manager of the Italian fashion group, will leave his role and take board responsibility for financial management and investments.

Livio Proli, general manager of subsidiary Simint, will succeed Gerbotto as general manager of Giorgio Armani.

Deputy general manager John Hooks will become group deputy chairman and will join the board of directors with responsibility for global strategy and markets and brand development. Hooks will maintain all his responsibilities for the group’s foreign subsidiaries.
