Diego Della Valle Not Stepping Aside

NOT SO FAST: Diego Della Valle is not relinquishing any role within the Tod’s Group. Asked to comment on a Reuters report on Tuesday, following a Tod’s investor day and based on two sources speculating the chairman and chief executive officer is “reviewing his role” with plans to “step aside,” a spokesperson for the Italian luxury group refuted this. “Nobody knows when and if this will happen. Mr. Della Valle said that when the management will be in place, when the time will be right, when it will be opportune, one day” he may consider this, explained the spokesperson.
As reported, on Monday Tod’s announced a 4.7 percent decrease in sales to 722.2 million euros in the first nine months of the year and the appointment of a new managing director, Umberto Macchi di Cellere, who will succeed longtime coceo Stefano Sincini.
While the spokeswoman said no financial targets were given to the investors, Della Valle stated on Monday that “for the current year, we are confident to deliver results in line with market expectations.” The 2017 consensus pegs revenues at 981 million euros with an EBITDA margin of 17 percent.
Tod’s shares closed down 3.89 percent at 54.40 euros on Tuesday on

WHEREABOUTS: Stepping Out of Place

WHEREABOUTS: Stepping Out of Place


WHEREABOUTS: STEPPING OUT OF PLACE is an anthology of the best nonfiction stories from Outside In Literary & Travel Magazine, an online journal founded in 2011. Editor Brandi Dawn Henderson presents thirty-eight emerging and established global storytellers who share stories discussing what it means to enter a new place; the kinds of worlds that exist to others that we, ourselves, do not experience; and how place and/or circumstance can affect who and how we are. Whether it is the story of a dog musher’s girlfriend, a heavy-metal-loving Marine, an Inner Mongolian lover, or a Mormon missionary living in a dangerous land, this anthology explores the question: Why does anyone take the first step to anywhere he or she doesn’t “belong?

Ralph Lauren Is Stepping Down as CEO of His Namesake Brand

For the first time in the history of Ralph Lauren, someone other than the designer will hold the title of chief executive officer. Stefan Larsson, who has been Old Navy’s global president since 2012, is taking over the role. Prior to working at Old Navy, Larsson spent 15 years at H&M.

The executive change-up doesn’t mean Lauren’s involvement will be reduced. Rather, he told WWD that he will be as present as ever. “This is important to say: There is no toe in the water. I love what I’m doing, I love the company. I won’t be coming two days a week.” He will maintain his roles as executive chairman and chief creative officer.

“I had dinner with Ralph, the most iconic American fashion designer,” Larsson said. “Our meeting had a big impact on me. I think we started speaking dreams minutes into the dinner. Dreams and realizing that Ralph has made more in his life so far than anybody can ever dream of and here he is, speaking about growing the business, speaking about generations, speaking about stories. And I was just moved by that.”

Scarlett Johansson Stepping Down As Oxfam Ambassador

LOS ANGELES (AP) — Scarlett Johansson is ending her relationship with a humanitarian group after being criticized over her support for an Israeli company that operates in the West Bank.

A statement released by Johansson’s spokesman Wednesday said the 29-year-old actress has “a fundamental difference of opinion” with Oxfam International because the humanitarian group opposes all trade from Israeli settlements, saying they are illegal and deny Palestinian rights. “Scarlett Johansson has respectfully decided to end her ambassador role with Oxfam after eight years,” the statement said. “She and Oxfam have a fundamental difference of opinion in regards to the boycott, divestment and sanctions movement. She is very proud of her accomplishments and fundraising efforts during her tenure with Oxfam.”

Earlier this month, “The Avengers” and “Her” actress signed on as the first global brand ambassador of SodaStream International Ltd., and she’s set to appear in an ad for the at-home soda maker during the Super Bowl on Feb. 2.

SodaStream has come under fire from pro-Palestinian activists for maintaining a large factory in an Israeli settlement in the West Bank, a territory captured by Israel in 1967 and claimed by the Palestinians.

In response to the criticism, Johansson said last week she was a “supporter of economic cooperation and social interaction between a democratic Israel and Palestine.”

Oxfam took issue with Johansson, noting it was “considering the implications of her new statement and what it means for Ms. Johansson’s role as an Oxfam global ambassador.”

Johansson had served as a global ambassador for Oxfam since 2007, raising funds and promoting awareness about global poverty. In her role as an Oxfam ambassador, she traveled to India, Sri Lanka and Kenya to highlight the impact of traumatic disasters and chronic poverty.

Oxfam representatives did not immediately return messages seeking comment.
