Wacoal Europe appoints Hans Hornemann as general manager

Hans Hornemann has been appointed as general manager for Wacoal Europe, with responsibility for the UK, Europe, the Middle East, Africa and Russia.

Hornemann is currently regional chief executive for the Middle East, Central and Eastern Europe at Triumph International. He has also previously held senior international roles in both wholesale and fashion retail at Cartier, Pandora, Georg Jensen and Ecco.

He will start his new role in late February.

“I am delighted Hans is joining us,” said Tracy Lewis, chief executive of Wacoal Europe. “He brings with him a wealth of experience in building retail and wholesale distribution networks and this will be hugely valuable in furthering the development of the Wacoal Europe business and the presence of our brand portfolio globally.”

The lingerie and swimwear manufacturer created the new role of general manager following the departure of sales director Nigel Addison in November, who returned to his former employer Duck and Cover in the role of managing director.

Wacoal Europe changed its name from Wacoal Eveden this month.
