American luxury lifestyle brand Michael Kors has named Daisuke Yamazaki president of the company's Japanese arm following the retirement of Toshi Tashiro. Yamazaki will report to Stephane Lafay, the company's president for Asia, it said in a press release.

Tashiro will stay on through the end of 2015 in order to ensure a smooth transition of responsibilities.

Yamazaki most recently served as CEO of Roberto Cavalli Japan. Previously, he was the CEO of the Alexander McQueen Division, at Gucci Japan Limited. Prior to that he spent 15 years at Giorgio Armani Japan, where he held a variety of positions, including heading sales and merchandising for both the women's and men's lines.

John D. Idol, chairman and CEO of Michael Kors, said, “Daisuke's background and expertise make him an ideal match for Michael Kors. He will be working closely with Stephane Lafay to take our business in Japan to the next level of success. With deep knowledge of the Japanese fashion market and expertise in managing international fashion brands he will be a tremendous resource as we build upon the success we have achieved in growing the Michael Kors brand in this region.”

“I am thrilled to join Michael Kors at this exciting moment in the brand's development,” said Yamazaki. “There are great opportunities for the Michael Kors brand in Japan and I look forward to building upon the success achieved by Tashiro and his team to achieve the next stage of growth.” (SH)
