Luxury conglomerate Kering has appointed Roberto Vedovotto to its executive committee, with immediate effect.
Vedovotto has been with Kering just under two years and leads the group’s eyewear division, which is currently building an in-house eyewear platform for its luxury, sport and lifestyle brands. His appointment to the executive committee shows the importance of Kering Eyewear as a major growth driver for the group.
François-Henri Pinault, chairman and CEO of Kering, said: "Roberto Vedovotto’s appointment to our executive committee is a step further in the development of a more integrated and specialised group, whose main objective is to support the brands so that they fulfil their growth potential.
“Roberto’s expertise in the eyewear industry and his knowledge of the fashion and luxury world will provide a valuable contribution to our executive committee, for the group and our brands."
