GENERAL MERCHANDISE

Christopher Kane appoints new chief executive

Previously strategic marketing and media director of Kering, Talonpoika has worked with the Kering group for the past eight years.

Most recently, he was Kering’s strategic marketing and media director, a position he held from 2012. He started his career in London, working at advertising groups WPP and Publicis as international client director on accounts such as Richemont, L’Oréal and Nespresso. Based in Paris since 2005, he was appointed media director at Gucci Group in 2008.

In his new role, Talonpoika will report to Kering’s group managing director Jean-François Palus and will be responsible for accelerating the brand’s international expansion while, together with Christopher and Tammy Kane, further strengthening its identity.

Talonpoika succeeds Sarah Crook who is leaving the Kering group after two years as chief executive of the Christopher Kane house. During Crook’s tenure, the brand opened its first flagship store in London, expanded internationally and diversified into new product categories.
