Before that, she was an independent consultant, having previously worked at Net-a-porter as head of public relations and then adding marketing in the U.S. to become head of communications. Earlier, she was with Ralph Lauren as vice president of women’s public relations and vice president of international and corporate pubic relations, directing editorial and event activities for the brands in Asia and Latin America.
She will report jointly to Gaetano Sciuto, president of Fendi Americas, and Cristiana Monfardini, global directors of communications.
