Hugo Boss AG said Monday that chief operating officer Hans Fluri will step down by March 31 to become chairman of Red & Black Lux S.à r.l. on April 1. Red & Black is the parent company of Valentino Fashion Group S.p.A., which is the main shareholder of Hugo Boss AG. Klaus-Gerhard Bierbrauer will succeed Fluri and will focus primarily on purchasing, production and logistics. For the last eight years, he has been part of the operations team at Gucci Group, where his responsibilities included product management; purchasing and procurement; supply chain management; quality and production management, as well as logistics. Before that, he had stints in operations management with Jil Sander and Louis Feraud.

"It's really hard sometimes. I think I have a reputation for being really tough and aggressive and pushy but I really am a very shy person who wants to be liked, and that's the conflict constantly. There's something that takes hold - I want people to like me, I don't want to be mean - but if I see something that just cries out to be answered, I go for it," says renowned NBC News correspondent Andrea Mitchell.
