The luxe label has appointed former Burberry chief operations officer Andy Janowski as its new CEO.
He takes over from Jacques Bahbout, the brand’s owner who also serves as chairman.
’The opportunity to join such an iconic British luxury brand and build towards fulfilling its tremendous potential is extremely rare,’ said Janowski.
‘Smythson’s remarkably rich heritage and reputation presents fertile ground for growth, and I am very much looking forward to working together with our team to broaden the brand’s horizons.’
Janowski began his career at Banana Republic before becoming vice president of production and supply chain at Gap. According to Bahbout, he suits the role at Smythson due to his ‘deep understanding of the luxury consumer.’
