Loro Piana has tapped Fabio d’Angelantonio as chief executive officer, effective Sept. 1. He succeeds Matthieu Brisset.

“I am excited to have Fabio take the helm at Loro Piana. He has a great track record in developing brands, retail operations and people across the globe,” said Antoine Arnault, president of the Quarona, Italy-based company. “He also brings a warm personality and Italian touch to continue the development of Loro Piana at the very high end of ready- to-wear and textile products.” LVMH Moët Hennessy Louis Vuitton took a majority stake in Loro Piana, known for its luxurious cashmere, wool and fine textiles, in 2013.

“Three years after the acquisition of Loro Piana, I think it is safe to say that Matthieu Brisset and I have accomplished the mission given to us by Sergio and Pier Luigi Loro Piana: to integrate their exceptional company smoothly into LVMH Group while respecting at all times the values of the brand and the great people working there.” In thanking Brisset for his accomplishments and defining him “a key asset,” Arnault said his new position within LVMH will be announced “shortly.”

An Italian native, d’Angelantonio was previously chief marketing officer of Luxottica, as well as president of Sunglass Hut within the Italian eyewear giant firm. Prior to this, he held senior positions in sales and marketing between 1995 and 2004,  at Editions Hemma in Brussels, then in Milan at Ciaoweb — Internet portal of the Fiat Group — and Indesit Co.
