Montblanc appoints new general manager of leather goods division
Montblanc has appointed Jean-Charles Hita as the new general manager of its leather goods division.
Hita, a graduate of the ESSEC business school in Paris, began his luxury industry career at Céline as production and merchandising director in 1996. From 2000 to 2007, he was in charge of Bulgari's accessories division. He also worked at Newel Rubbermaid (owner of Parker and Waterman), then at Burberry in Hong Kong, as senior vice-president strategy for Asia-Pacific. From 2016, he worked for Giorgio Armani in Milan as accessories division director.
For his new role at Montblanc, Hita will be working in Hamburg, Germany.
Montblanc is owned by Swiss group Richemont, which in September 2018 appointed a new general manager, Jérôme Lambert. In the third quarter of the 2018-19 financial year, the group recorded a revenue of €3.9 billion, up 6% in like-for-like terms compared to the same period the previous year.
