Giorgio Lepratto new Head of GTR for Coccinelle
Italian luxury accessories brand Coccinelle has announced the appointment of Giorgio Lepratto as Head of Global Travel Retail. The company stated that this move is being made with the intent to greatly strengthen the brand’s internationalization and presence in this channel.
Lepratto is already well known as an important member of the company’s Global Travel Retail team, and the company states that he has contributed greatly to the development of the channel. Coccinelle’s presence in travel retail includes over 160 points of sale at airports, downtown duty-free malls and cruise ships worldwide.
In this new role Lepratto, who will report directly to Chief Operating Officer Emanuele Mazziotta, will be responsible for supporting the expansion of the travel retail channel in new countries as well as its growth in countries where it is already present.
As travel retail has proven itself a strong strategic channel for Coccinelle, the company is further strengthening and solidifying its team, which will now include Roberta Danesi as Global Travel Retail Manager.
“I welcome Giorgio in his new position as Head of Global Travel Retail and I am sure he will bring his experience and knowledge to further consolidate the Travel Retail business of Coccinelle worldwide, together with Roberta and the team,” said Emanuele Mazziotta.
