PARFUMS UNGARO PEALIGNED; GIROU NAMED ACTING DIRECTOR
PARIS — Parfums Ungaro has been restructured, following the exit last month of Loic Delteil, who was managing director of the company for five years.
Didier Girou, previously a sales director for northern Europe under Delteil, was named acting director.
Girou, 39, joined the company in 1989 as financial comptroller and established the company’s sales administration, as well as heading northern European sales.
Girou said Delteil left because he wanted to work on product development and thought he would have expanded opportunities elsewhere.
Delteil could not be reached for comment.
Meanwhile, Parfums Ungaro’s structure has changed slightly. Ungaro remains a subsidiary of Chanel. Claude Eliette-Hermann, president of Chanel, and Antoine Housset, managing director of Bourjois, an affiliated mass market company, remain the legal managers for Parfums Ungaro. Chanel and Bourjois are owned by the Wertheimer family.
Girou will report to Housset, who will oversee Parfums Ungaro’s strategy. Delteil reported to Eliette-Hermann.
