Paul Marciano will replace Maurice Marciano as executive chairman of the board and will continue serving as chief creative officer. Marciano will remain a director, and has been named chairman emeritus by the board of directors.

In the past 10 years, Herrero was responsible for building Inditex's multi-billion dollar business in Asia.

Herrero has been with Inditex for the past 12 years after he started his career with them in Europe, the statement said.

"Maurice and I have been working with the Board for over a year now to select the right candidate to be my successor as Chief Executive Officer of Guess?. We believe that Victor is the perfect top executive because, in addition to his entrepreneurial spirit, he has unparalleled experience in building a large business in Asia, he has a deep understanding of the current world of retail, and he is extremely knowledgeable in best in class sourcing and supply chain," Marciano said.

I am particularly thrilled to have the opportunity to use my background and to contribute my skills in order to unlock a tremendous amount of value for our shareholders."
