NEW YORK — Luca Voarino, president of Pucci USA, has left the firm to pursue other interests.

Voarino started in January 2008, taking on the newly created role of president to expand its retail and wholesale business and further its brand image and awareness. He had joined the iconic Italian brand, known for its vivid prints, from Marni, where he served as vice president and director of sales in the U.S. In May, his responsibilities at Pucci, a division of LVMH U.S., expanded to include the business development in America of Loewe.

Voarino could not be reached for comment.

His responsibilities will be assumed by Tim Crout, who has been promoted to senior vice president. Crout was previously vice president of retail at Pucci Ltd., and in this role, he will be in charge of all wholesale and retail activities in the North American market. Crout joined the U.S. division of the LVMH Moët Hennessy Louis Vuitton brand in 2004, and reports to Didier Drouet, chief executive officer for Emilio Pucci worldwide.
