Important professional moves of the week!

Endaba Group

Victor & Rolf

Andrea Collesei appointment as the new Chief Executive of Viktor & Rolf coincides with the Dutch label’s move to reposition itself in the high luxury sector. Collesei was previously Head of Distribution at Diesel. It’ll be interesting to see how he helps them in their shift.


Coinciding with Wal-Mart’s takeover, Yu Gang and Liu Junling, Chairman and Chief Executive of Yihaodian, have resigned, leaving Wal=Mart  to grow and develop its involvement in Yihaodian’s day-to-day.

Marks & Spencer

John Dixon resigned as Head of Marks 7 Spencer’s non-food division after 27 years. His exit calls into question effective succession planning, as who now should follow Marc Bolland in the top role?
