Mulberry has appointed Italian jewellery brand Buccellati chief executive Thierry Andretta as non-executive director
Four of AIM-listed Mulberry’s five non-executive directors are employed or related to its majority owners Ong Beng Seng and Christina Ong, who own more than 56% of the company.
Andretta has a wealth of experience in the luxury goods sector and previously worked at Lanvin, Moschino, Gucci and LVMH.
Last year Mulberry appointed another independent non-executive director, Nestlé Nespresso’s Christophe Cornu.
Mulberry is set to reveal a 46% fall in profit for the year to around £14 million on Thursday, following four profit warnings.
Chief executive Bruno Guillon left in April and chairman Godfrey Davis stepped in to run the group.
