PARIS — French retail-to-luxury group PPR said it has appointed Jean-Marc Duplaix as chief financial officer in order to free up group managing director Jean-François Palus to take on additional responsibilities within the group, as part of an ongoing management reorganization launched earlier this year.
Palus, who previously combined the managing director and cfo positions, will dedicate his time fully to expanding, supporting and coordinating the group’s brands, which range from Gucci to Puma and books and electronics retailer Fnac, PPR stated.
