Marco Gobbeti to Bid Farwell British Fashion Brand Burberry

Burberry popular for its check fabric and TB monogram’s boss Marco Gobbetti is leaving the British fashion brand after more than four years as CEO to take the helm at luxury goods group Ferragamo in his native Italy.

Ferragamo, famous for shoes worn by Hollywood stars such as Audrey Hepburn, said Gobbetti would take up his new position as soon as he is released from his contractual obligations.

Burberry earlier said that Gobbetti would be leaving at the end of the year to take up a position that will allow him to return to Italy, adding that it will now begin the search for his successor.

Burberry had said in May that sales were recovering from the coronavirus crisis, partly due to a rebound in China, but cautioned that profit margins would be dented by higher investment.

Burberry shares, which have gained more than a third in value since Gobbetti’s too charge, slid 6 percent to 21.15 pounds on the FTSE 100 index within minutes of the opening bell on Monday.

“With Burberry re-energised and firmly set on a path to strong growth, I feel that now is the right time for me to step down,” Gobbetti said.
