Alexander Wang fter a year of leading both the creative and business sides of his namesake fashion brand, the designer is relinquishing his chief executive officer title, appointing former Goop and Martha Stewart Omnimedia head Lisa Gersh to the position effective immediately. Wang also recruited Stephanie Horton, the former chief marketing officer of luxury marketplace Farfetch, to take on the newly created role of chief strategy officer.
“I am honoured and excited by the opportunity to help Alex shape this remarkable company,” Gersh said in a statement. “The Alexander Wang brand has always represented style, innovation and an extraordinary standard of quality and excellence. I’m looking forward to working with Alex and the rest of the team to build on his foundation, and to continue to delight customers with our products and creative vision.”
“Pushing boundaries and extreme creativity has always been at the core of the Alexander Wang business,” added Horton. “I look forward to working with the team to expand these capabilities, as well as looking outside of traditional channels and spectrums, to develop new and innovative growth opportunities for the brand.”
