Mary Katrantzou hires chief executive

Mary Katrantzou, winner of this year’s British Fashion Council/Vogue Designer Fashion Fund, has hired Trino Verkade as chief executive.

The London-based designer received a £200,000 grant to help take her business to the next stage of its development in March.

Verkade was executive vice president of Thom Browne from August 2012 and previously spent 18 years as managing director and then director of licensing, store planning and special projects at Alexander McQueen.

Caroline Rush, chief executive of the British Fashion Council, said when Katrantzou was awarded the Designer Fashion Fund: “As anyone who has met Mary knows, she is a tireless worker, has an abundance of creativity and has grown from being one of London Fashion Week’s must-see emerging talents to one of the world’s most talked about designers.”
