US: Ralph Lauren appoints Asia Pacific president
Luxury goods firm Polo Ralph Lauren said Francois Delage will join the company as president of its Asia Pacific division on 1 September.
Delage will report to Scott Bowman, president of international business development.
His previous career has included a 16-year tenure with LVMH. Most recently, Delage was president of Asia Pacific at the Louis Vuitton division, where he was responsible for leading brand efforts across 14 markets for the last six years.
"The addition of a talented executive with Delage's substantial experience in luxury brand management in Asia fits perfectly into the Polo Ralph Lauren international growth strategy," said Roger Farah, president and COO.
Polo Ralph Lauren desgns, markets and distributes premium lifestyle products in the four categories of apparel, home, accessories and fragrances.
