PARIS — LVMH Moët Hennessy Louis Vuitton has tapped Frédéric Grangie, managing director of Goyard, as president and chief executive officer of Louis Vuitton’s Japanese subsidiary, effective Sept. 1.

Grangie will also join the executive committee of the Paris-based luxury goods brand, LVMH said. A 20-year veteran of the luxury industry, the executive began his career with Vuitton before moving to New York to oversee the development of new markets for Marc Jacobs. Before working for Goyard, he was vice president of Fendi in Japan.

Philippe Schaus, executive vice president of Louis Vuitton, said: “At this time of strong worldwide growth of Louis Vuitton, we are realizing unprecedented investments in our retail network in Japan. Under these circumstances, we are pleased to welcome Frédéric Grangie to head Louis Vuitton operations in Japan at such a dynamic moment.”
