PARIS — Emilio Pucci has a new general manager: Didier Drouet, who joins the LVMH Moët Hennessy Louis Vuitton-owned fashion house from the jewelry firm Poiray.

Drouet, 47, succeeds Catherine Vautrin, who has been chairman and chief executive officer of Pucci since the French luxury group acquired the brand in 2000.

LVMH said Vautrin, who had previously been director of ready-to-wear development at Louis Vuitton, left the group to pursue other interests.

Reached by WWD on Thursday, Vautrin was mum about her next move.

Drouet is a graduate of the prestigious French schools HEC and the Institute of Political Studies. He started his career at L'Oréal in 1984 and his résumé includes stints at Cartier, Salvatore Ferragamo and Stephane Kélian.
