Luc Dony, who had been finance director at Chanel SAS, has been named administrative president, and Didier Sabas, who had been general manager in Europe, becomes president of Chanel Europe.

The two executives assume some of the duties previously handled by Véronique Morali, who exited as president of Chanel SAS last September after a brief tenure.

The French fashion and beauty firm is headed by Maureen Chiquet, who was named global chief executive officer of Chanel a year ago.
