LONDON — In 2013, LVMH Moët Hennessy Louis Vuitton took a 46 percent stake in British designer J.W. Anderson‘s namesake label.

It was just announced that the designer has found his new chief executive officer at the flagship brand of LVMH.

In a release, Anderson said Jenny GalimbertiLouis Vuitton’s communications and events director, would take on the role of CEO.

In a separate statement, Louis Vuitton named Stefano Cantino, a former Prada executive, as Galimberti’s successor.

The CEO role at London-based J.W. Anderson has been vacant since the end of last year, when Simon Whitehouse left his post after three years, citing personal reasons (see it here).

Galimberti joined Vuitton in 2015, helping shepherd the brand through a growth and modernization phase under chairman and CEO Michael Burke and Nicolas Ghesquière, artistic director of women’s collections.

During Galimberti’s tenure, Vuitton also welcomed Virgil Abloh as head of men’s design and Francesca Amfitheatr of as artistic director of watches and jewelry.

As a member of Vuitton’s executive committee, Galimberti had worldwide responsibility for communications and brand development, including media relations, events and digital. She joined Vuitton from Alfred Dunhill, where she was chief marketing officer. She has also held senior roles in communications and brand development at Gucci, L’Oréal, Swarovski and Prada.

Born in Northern Ireland in 1984, Jonathan William Anderson is known for his provocative and androgynous designs. He studied men’s wear at the London College of Fashion, graduating in 2005, and launched his JW Anderson fashion label in 2008.

He also has been the creative director of Loewe since 2013, and recently extended his employment contract with the Madrid-based leather goods specialist, according to market sources.
