Company insider Marco Giacometti has been tapped as chief executive officer of Tod's USA.
Giacometti was previously general manager of Tod's northern region including France, the U.K., Belgium, the Netherlands and Luxembourg. The promotion is effective immediately.
Giacometti will oversee the corporate activity for Tod's, Hogan and Roger Vivier. He has worked at the company nine years.
Peter Tannenbaum will retain his title of chief operating officer of Tod's USA.
"I am very happy for this opportunity that was given to Marco Giacometti," former Tod's USA ceo Claudio Castiglioni, who is now president of Tod's USA and chief commercial officer of Tod's SpA, said in a statement. "Because of his background, being responsible for France, United Kingdom and Benelux, he has achieved great experience in both retail and wholesale."
Castiglioni was named chief commercial officer of Tod's SpA in January 2007. Like Castiglioni, Giacometti reports to the Milan-based Stefano Sincini, Tod's SpA chief executive officer.
In November, the company reported a profit increase of 8.9 percent to 57.3 million euros, or $76.8 million, for the nine months ended Sept. 30. Sales for the period advanced 14.1 percent to 499.9 million euros, or $670 million. Revenues would have grown 16 percent at constant exchange rates. Revenues in the U.S. advanced 10.3 percent to 47.4 million euros, or $63.5 million, and would have gained as much as 19 percent at constant exchange rates.
In March, Tod's is opening a 2,200-square-foot store in Dallas' NorthPark Center.

For @massimogiorgetti of @msgm, the Nineties are his favorite decade. “They had a huge impact on my personal growth. What I like of the Nineties is that they are not so precise in terms of style as other decades…there was actually a bit of everything,” he said. As seen on MSGM’s Spring 2018 show: tie-dye and a bit of grunge, two styles that are synonymous with the decade #wwdfashion #wwddecades (📷: @kukukuba)
Breaking News: @hedislimane joins @celine as its new artistic, creative and image director. One of fashion’s preeminent image-makers and trendsetters, Slimane is to join the LVMH brand on Feb. 1 and unveil his first fashion proposition for men and women next September during Paris Fashion Week. It marks a major homecoming for Slimane, who cemented his reputation – and influenced men’s tailoring for more than a decade – as the designer of Dior Homme between 2000 and 2007. He went on to reinvent and ignite the house of Yves Saint Laurent, which he rechristened Saint Laurent, between 2012 and 2016 – all the while maintaining a close relationship with the Arnault family, which controls LVMH and Dior.

“Personally I believe the Eighties have been the richest and more vivacious period for international fashion,” Giorgio Armani said when asked what his favorite decade of fashion is. It was a moment of disruption and experimentation and only thinking back to the first years of that decade is always an emotion for me, for what they have meant to me and my work.” The influence is clear in @giorgioarmani spring 2018 collection, pictured here, which was full of bright colors and unexpected prints.
