Marcella Wartenbergh is new CEO of Pepe Jeans

Wartenbergh is replacing Carlos Ortega, founder and shareholder of the Pepe Jeans Group. Most recently, she was chief merchandising officer at Calvin Klein, a role she took up just four months ago. But she spent many years at PVH, the American group behind global brands including Tommy Hilfiger, Arrow, Van Heusen, Izod, Speedo and Calvin Klein. Before being promoted to chief merchandising officer, Wartenbergh held many roles at the retail group, including group president of global licensing and strategic initiatives at Calvin Klein. She cut her teeth in the merchandising division of Tommy Hilfiger in the Netherlands in 1999.

Pepe Jeans owns the Pepe Jeans London, Hackett and Façonnable brands and distributes Tommy Hilfiger and Calvin Klein in Spain. The group is majority owned by L Capital Asia, a private equity unit backed by LVMH, and M1, a subsidiary of Lebanese investment firm M1 Group. Pepe Jeans has 355 stores, including 219 Pepe Jeans locations, 105 Hackett shops, 29 Tommy Hilfiger outlets, two Norton stores and 16 Façonnable sites. The company is looking at closing a number of Façonnable stores as part of a wider restructure to turn around its finances.
