Micaela Le Divelec, who was associated with the Italian luxury brand of fashion and leather goods Gucci for nearly two decades, says ‘goodbye’ to the company, emptying the post of Executive Vice President and Chief Consumer Officer.
This comes following an announcement of an organisational revamping at Gucci, effective from March 1, 2018.
The fashion brand decided on revamping its managerial formation into a new set of four supporting pillars catering to a better CEO assistance and take the company to new heights that witnessed a remarkable 2017 with a 6.21 billion euros turnover (up by 41.9 per cent).
Markedly, Micaela held key positions such as Financial Director at the fashion brand. Maintaining such hold with the company, she took responsibility for administering the brand’s sales networks as well.
Gucci CEO Marco Bizzarri said that in the past three years, the brand has attempted to bring a change in the historical pattern followed by the fashion world. This is seen through its hopes to build success on the well-defined values, focus on people, creativity and transformation, team empowerment and challenging the status quo.
To execute the plan, Gucci will have the four executives reporting to Bizzarri. This will include the role of merchandising and global markets, led by Jacopo Venturini and creative renewal, under the initiation of its Creative Director Alessandro Michele.
Further, Piero Braga will take care of the indirect channels, outlet and travel retail; while the brand and customer engagement will be taken care of by Marketing Director Robert Triefus.
The luxury label strives to increase its focus on the digital business as well. As part of the restructuring, Nicolas Oudinot has been assigned the responsibility of making Gucci online-savvy.
Gucci aims to strengthen and mushroom its relationships with the clients, deemed achievable by establishing and maintaining a constant personalised conversation across all channels via these fresh appointments.
