Capri Holdings appoints chief executive of Jimmy Choo
Luxury group Capri Holdings has appointed Hannah Colman as chief executive of the Jimmy Choo footwear brand on a permanent basis.
She will report to John Idol, chairman and chief executive of Capri Holdings, and has succeeded Pierre Denis who stepped down in February.
Colman has worked with Jimmy Choo for 24 years, initially as the store manager of the brand’s first boutique on London’s Motcomb Street. From there, she went on to serve in a number of roles including president of EMEA and global ecommerce. She is currently serving as the company’s interim chief executive.
Idol said: “Hannah has been instrumental in Jimmy Choo’s growth with her instinctive vision for the brand. She has done an outstanding job leading the business during a highly challenging and unprecedented time. I have every faith that she will continue to lead Jimmy Choo to even greater heights. Our company has an excellent team in place and I am confident that under Hannah’s leadership the brand will continue to go from strength to strength.”
Sandra Choi, founder and creative director of Jimmy Choo, added: “Hannah and I have worked together since the start of our fashion luxury house. I couldn’t be happier that she will now lead our company as we continue to grow Jimmy Choo as one of the most important British luxury brands in the world. We share the same vision for the future of this brand that we both love.”
