Tapestry, Inc., a leading New York-based house of modern luxury accessories and lifestyle brands, has announced the appointment of Eraldo Poletto as chief executive officer (CEO) and brand president of Stuart Weitzman. He will join the company on April 30, 2018, and will succeed Wendy Kahn, the brand’s current chief executive officer and brand president.

In this role, Poletto will be responsible for all aspects of Stuart Weitzman globally, partnering closely with the brand’s creative director, Giovanni Morelli. He will report to Victor Luis, Tapestry, Inc.’s CEO.

Poletto most recently held the role of CEO of Salvatore Ferragamo S.p.A. He started his career in fashion in Italy at Miroglio Group, and holds a degree in economics from the University of Turin and a masters in fashion, retail and textile management from ISTAO, Istituto Adriano Olivetti in Ancona.

Victor Luis said, “Stuart Weitzman is at important point in the brand’s evolution with the upcoming launch of Giovanni’s first collection and the recent buyback of its Northern China business, taking greater control of the brand’s destiny through an increased level of direct ownership. In Eraldo, we have found a leader who, over the last 30 years, has acquired both the global luxury experience and deep understanding of iconic brands to drive results. He brings a proven, successful track record in building and engaging teams and in developing and maximising international growth across all fashion categories”

Poletto said, “I am thrilled by the opportunity to lead this iconic brand. Stuart Weitzman footwear has long represented quality, style, and the beautiful combination of form and fit. I look forward to working with the team to build on this foundation as we evolve into a global, multi-category brand. It is my goal to continue to delight our customers with innovative products, amazing client experiences, and marketing programmes that celebrate the confident women around the world who love our brand.” (GK)
