Michael Kors appoints new EMEA president
Michaels Kors shared on Thursday the appointment of Robin Gendron as its new president for the Europe, Middle East and Africa region.
As of June 1, Gendron will report to John D. Idol, chairman and chief executive officer of Capri Holdings.
Gendron, who joined Michael Kors over 15 years ago, most recently held the position of senior vice president of retail, e-commerce and operations for the EMEA region.
He started his career with the company at its Montreal office and later moved to the U.S. to take on the role of vice president of footwear sales. He subsequently moved to London to lead wholesale and merchandising for the EMEA region.
"Robin has deep roots in the Michael Kors brand and has proven himself to be a strong leader and innovative thinker as the company has grown exponentially over the past 15 years,” said John. “He has an exceptional breadth of knowledge of all aspects of the business, from sales, retail and merchandising to ecommerce and operations. He is the ideal choice to lead Michael Kors EMEA into the future.”
Gendron added: “Michael has created one of the most successful and iconic global brands, and I am honored to continue to propel Michael’s vision and drive the business for the EMEA region.”
Michael Kors celebrated its 40th anniversary in April with a New York event where he created the MK40 Reissue Capsule, a special curation of looks inspired by the archives.
