She will report directly to Kering chairman and chief executive François-Henri Pinault and the chief executives of Alexander McQueen, Balenciaga, Brioni, Christopher Kane, Stella McCartney and Tomas Maier will report to her.

The division also includes Gucci, Bottega Veneta and Saint Laurent, which will remain under Pinault’s direct supervision.

Loebsack was previously executive vice-president of global skin care at Unilever since 2012 and was global brand president of French skin care brand Vichy from 2010. Between 2004 and 2010, she was general manager of L’Oreal Paris and then managing director of L’Oreal in the UK and Ireland.

Pinault said: “ I am convinced that her strong, international background will allow us to further develop the brands under her supervision, while identifying and achieving value-creation synergies.”
