12 Feb 2018
Valentino has roped in Isabelle Harvie-Watt as its new Chief Marketing Officer, reports Business of Fashion. She would be joining the business on April 16, 2018. Her responsibilities at Valentino include overseeing marketing and communications for the company, reporting directly to CEO Stefano Sassi.
She most recently served as managing partner of Spring Studios. Prior to Spring Studios, Harvie-Watt was associated with Havas Media Group for five years as chief executive and country manager.
The fashion house is currently owned by the State of Qatar through investment fund Mayhoola, which acquired the label in 2012 at a value of 700 million euros (859.7 million dollars). After Maria Grazia Chiruri’s exit as the co-creative director, Valentino’s collections are solely managed by its current Creative Director Pierpaolo Piccioli.
