Lifestyle products company Coach has named Wendy Kahn, as CEO and president of its Stuart Weitzman brand and will be joining the company from September 13, 2016.

Wendy Kahn is currently working at Valentino Fashion Group, where she is the CEO of two brands, Valentino and V.F.G. and was earlier senior vice president of sales, marketing & retail for Valentino.

Prior to joining Valentino, from 1996-2006, Kahn held senior leadership roles at LVMH Moët Hennessy Louis Vuitton, at brands like Marc Jacobs, Celine and Pucci.

“Wendy's success in developing global luxury brands and extensive general management experience make her the ideal candidate to lead Stuart Weitzman, building on the brand's strong foundation,” said Victor Luis, CEO of Coach.

“She is highly regarded as a brand champion and for her ability to drive growth in both wholesale and retail channels and across categories including footwear, apparel and accessories,” he added.

“Stuart Weitzman is a brand I have long admired, fusing fashion and fit, with a unique positioning at the gateway to luxury. I look forward to contributing to its growth and partnering with the entire leadership team,” Kahn too said. (AR)
