Jean-Louis Delamarre and Catherine Spindler

Lacoste has made two key appointments to its management team.

Catherine Spindler has been named executive vice president, marketing and branding, and Jean-Louis Delamarre was appointed executive vice president, markets and distribution. They are both joining Lacoste’s executive committee.

Both executives, who are based in Paris, report to Thierry Guibert, chief executive officer of Lacoste.

“These appointments demonstrate the appeal of the Lacoste group as well as our commercial energy. We are counting on the leadership and managerial qualities of these two professionals to continue to develop the brand’s premiumization and desirability, as well as its commercial development around the world,” said Guibert.

Spindler began her career at LVMH before joining Yves Rocher, where she held a variety of communication and marketing roles. She has also been brand vice president and member of the executive committee of the Dr. Pierre Ricaud brand, and has served as chief marketing officer of Vente-Privee. She has also served as vice president, customer experience for the group and general manager, France.

Delamarre began his career at Procter & Gamble, where he held several management roles over 20 years in the fields of strategic development and sales development, notably in the EMEA and in Asia. He later joined the Lacoste group in 2014 as chief executive officer Asia-Pacific and chief executive officer Global Travel Retail. From 2017, he has been ceo, EMEA and ceo of Global Travel Retail.

Spindler succeeds Sandrine Conseiller, who was appointed ceo of Aigle, a French footwear and textile company that is part of Maus Frères International, which also owns Lacoste. Delamarre replaces Didier Lalance, who left the company.
