Stuart Weitzman footwear brand to appoint Italian Eraldo Poletto as new CEO in New York

At the end of February Salvatore Ferragamo announced that Eraldo Poletto was not their managing director any longer. Yesterday, that is, six weeks later, they made public, in New York, that Poletto will be appointed, on April 30, as new chief executive officer and brand president of Stuart Weitzman, a fashion footwear company comprised in the portfolio of Tapestry group, together with Coach and Kate Spade. For the umpteenth time an Italian manager has joined the top management of luxury brands. On the other hand, this is also evidence that high-end fashion business is consistently attending to the reorganization of the managing team (not to mention their aim at innovation in terms of style). It is important to emphasize that Poletto (who is taking over after Wendy Kahn) will directly liaise with another Italian manager, Giovanni Morelli, creative director at Weitzman. Prior to his appointment at Ferragamo, where he worked less than two years, Poletto had been in charge of Furla (from 2010 until 2016).
