Apparel retailer Lands' End has named Dolce & Gabbana USA president Federica Marchionni as its new CEO, following the resignation of CEO Edgar Huber.

Marchionni will take up her new role on 17 February. Under Marchionni's leadership as president, Dolce & Gabbana USA's revenues increased significantly. She also elevated the positioning of the brand and redesigned strategies for expanding it across multiple channels, target customers and geographic areas.

Prior to Dolce & Gabbana, she held positions at luxury car manufacturer Ferrari as well as consumer technology and telecommunications companies, including Samsung, Phillips, and Ericsson.

Huber, who led the clothing company's spin-off from retailer Sears Holdings, has worked at Lands' End since 2011. He will stay with the group until Marchionni joins.

“I join the Lands' End family with the clear goal of moving the company forward by working with the Board to identify and pursue growth in key areas, collaborating with and inspiring our people to find new ways to delight customers, and delivering improved financial performance for our shareholders,” Marchionni said.

Chairman Josephine Linden added: “With annual sales in excess of US$1.5bn, roots more than 50 years deep and a great team behind it, Lands' End is ready for a new leader to accelerate the realisation of the full potential of the brand and drive profitable growth.”
