Giambattista Valli CEO Exits After Three-year Stint

Charlotte Werner, chief executive officer at Giambattista Valli, is exiting the role after three years for a “recent challenge.”

Her next move couldn’t immediately be learned. Valli officials couldn’t immediately be reached for comment.

Werner revealed her departure on her LinkedIn page.

“I’m very pleased with what we’ve got achieved with the team,” she wrote. “I began my journey with the maison in 2020, right in the course of the COVID-19 crisis. We overcame great challenges, have grown the team, expanded our geographic and product footprint, built and scaled up our online presence, bringing the business right into a growth trajectory.”

Valli and his minority stakeholder Artémis tapped Werner as CEO, a newly created position on the Paris-based fashion label because it eyed the lucrative accessories business.

The manager joined Valli from Louis Vuitton, where she had been manager of ladies’s leather goods collections and transversal projects. Prior to that, the ESSEC Business School graduate was an associate principal at consultancy McKinsey & Company.

“I’m very thankful to Mr. François Pinault, Mr. François-Henri Pinault and the Artémis team for his or her trust and continuous support,” Werner continued in her post. “I’m also grateful to Giambattista for sharing his vision of beauty and excellence.

“Thanks a lot to my talented team on your passion, energy and commitment. And thanks to all GBV partners world wide on your trust and support.”

Maison Valli, which was founded in 2004 and produces high fashion and the Giambattista Valli ready-to-wear line, has seen rapid growth since Artémis, the private investment arm of the Pinault family, took its stake in 2017, with the potential to grow to be a majority shareholder at a later stage.

Valli recently moved his company into spacious recent headquarters a stone’s throw from the Opéra Garnier. He’s slated to indicate his spring 2024 rtw collection during Paris Fashion Week on Sept. 29.
