PARIS — Putting more management muscle behind its Paris-based fashion houses, Puig has tapped former Chloé chairman and chief executive officer Ralph Toledano to lead development at Jean Paul Gaultier, effective Jan. 30.
Toledano is expected to add Nina Ricci to his responsibilities in about a year’s time. In addition to his new position at Puig, Toledano will continue to serve as chairman of St. John, where he was appointed last August, for the foreseeable future.
