Pierre-Emmanuel Angeloglou takes the reins at Fendi

The former L’Oréal man was recently appointed CEO of LVMH Fashion Group. Pierre-Emmanuel Angeloglou will take on the additional responsibility of CEO of Fendi on June 1st.

 

A new lease of life for Fendi?

 

With the appointment of a promising new CEO, Lvmh is making no secret of its ambitions for its Roman Maison.

 

Already appointed CEO of LVMH Fashion Group last March, Pierre-Emmanuel Angeloglou will also take over the helm at Fendi, effective June 1.

 

He will replace Serge Brunschwig, who has headed the Italian House for over six years, and who “will take on new responsibilities within the LVMH Group”, to be announced shortly.

As head of LVMH Fashion Group, a responsibility he retains, Pierre-Emmanuel Angeloglou already had his eye on Fendi, which he oversaw along with the group’s other iconic fashion houses, namely Marc Jacobs, Kenzo, Off-White, Pucci, Patou and Stella McCartney.

 

A successful career at l’Oréal

 

Before joining Lvmh in 2019, 49-year-old Pierre-Emmanuel Angeloglou had already enjoyed a successful career at L’Oréal spanning more than 23 years.

 

 

 

After graduating from HEC business school and obtaining a Master CEMS in Management from Università Bocconi in Milan (Italy), he held a number of different positions, culminating in the “Holy Grail” as Global President of the L’Oréal Paris brand from early 2017 to mid-2019. A position that enabled him to “strengthen the position of L’Oréal Paris” as a “global leader in the cosmetics sector”.

 

Prior to this, Pierre-Emmanuel Angeloglou had perfected his knowledge of the workings of the beauty giant in France and internationally, on three continents. He held a variety of senior marketing and product management positions in France, Italy and Portugal, as well as General Manager of LaScad (L’Oréal’s cosmetics distribution subsidiary) in France, Global Vice President of Skincare for L’Oréal Paris, General Manager of the Consumer Products Division in Brazil from 2009 to 2013, and then in North Asia from 2013 to 2016.

 

Debut at L’Oréal

 

In 2019, Pierre-Emmanuel Angeloglou joined Louis Vuitton, Lvmh’s flagship brand, as director of strategic missions in charge of fashion and leather goods. Three years later, in 2022, he became Deputy General Manager of Louis Vuitton, where he worked alongside the two iconic artistic directors, the late Virgil Abloh and Pharell Williams.

 

At Fendi, he will team up with Kim Jones, appointed in 2020 as artistic director of women’s collections, and Silvia Venturini Fendi, as artistic director of men’s collections and, by interim, women’s collections when Karl Lagerfeld passes away in February 2029. This creates an abysmal void, since the Kaiser had been in charge for 54 years, transforming the Roman fashion house from a furrier to a fashion designer in its own right.

 

Earlier this year, Fendi announced the appointment of three new male faces, all young actors, for its spring-summer 2024 campaign. Taiwanese Greg Hsu, American Jeremy Pope and Italian Massimiliano Caiazzo have become Fendi’s new global ambassadors. One in each of the three main fashion and luxury markets…Just like the policy that will no doubt be led by Pierre-Emmanuel Angeloglou?
