Wacoal Europe has appointed Triumph International executive, Hans Hornemann, as its new general manager for the EMEA markets.
Hornemann will join the company at the end of February, bringing with him a wealth of wholesale and fashion retail experience, having previously held senior international roles at Cartier, Pandora, Georg Jensen and Ecco.
He is currently the regional CEO for the Middle East, Central and Eastern Europe at Triumph International.
Tracy Lewis, CEO of Wacoal Europe said: “I am delighted that Hans is joining us. He brings with him experience in building retail and wholesale distribution networks and this will be hugely valuable in furthering the development of the Wacoal Europe business and the presence of our brand portfolio globally.”
The news comes as Wacoal Eveden drops the Eveden name to become Wacoal Europe Limited this month, as part of a major restructure plan.
Wacoal has created a second pillar for development across the Western Hemisphere, alongside Wacoal America, integrating the management of the existing businesses of Wacoal UK Limited and Wacoal France S.A.
