NEW YORK — François Kress has been named president and chief operating officer at The Row, a newly created post at the label designed by Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen.
A starting date for Kress at The Row has not been determined. He will join from Prada USA Corp., where he currently is president and chief executive officer, a position he has held since early 2010. Before that, he was ceo and managing director of Bulgari Corp. of North America, Latin America, and Bulgari Retail USA, and, prior, held several positions at LVMH Moët Hennessy Louis Vuitton, including that of president for Fendi North America.
