Global Fashion Group, the portfolio of fashion e-commerce platforms including The Iconic, Zalora, Dafiti and Lamoda, has announced that Victor Herrero is to join its board of directors.
The former Guess CEO has been named non-executive director and chairman of the sustainability committee, and will bring his extensive experience in some of the world’s largest fashion markets to support the executive management of Global Fashion Group.
