PARIS — Signaling its commitment to Dior Homme, Christian Dior is tapping a key talent from Bernard Arnault’s extended constellation of luxury holdings to oversee the brand. According to market sources, Fabrizio Malverdi, chief executive officer of Givenchy, will take the helm of Dior Homme in April.
Malverdi will report to Dior president and ceo Sidney Toledano, under whom he had served as managing director of John Galliano, where Toledano is president. Toledano recruited Malverdi, an Italian national, from the Muriella Burani Fashion Group in 2006. He left John Galliano to become ceo of Givenchy, also owned by Arnault’s LVMH Moët Hennessy Louis Vuitton.
