LUXURY shoe brand Jimmy Choo has appointed Pierre Denis as chief executive, replacing Joshua Schulman, who left the business at the beginning of the year.

Shulman’s departure followed swiftly after that of Jimmy Choo’s joint founder and former chief creative officer Tamara Mellon, who quit when the brand was bought by Swiss company Labelux for around £500m in May last year.

Denis joins from John Galliano, where he was until recently chief executive. He previously worked for luxury group LVMH as managing director of Christian Dior Couture.
