Christopher Bailey is officially the CEO of Burberry. Bailey now has the dual role of chief creative and chief executive officer for the British luxury label.
In October, Burberry announced that Bailey would replace Angela Ahrendts as its CEO when she departed the brand to take on the role of senior vice president for retail and online stores at Apple.
I am profoundly moved and humbled to be asked to take on the CEO role at this company that means so much to me - Christopher Bailey
“I also feel privileged to be keeping my role as chief creative officer, as I believe that creativity and innovation have been at the heart of our success in the last 10 years and will be even more so in the decade ahead. It has been my privilege to work with people right across the company over the last 10 years, and whilst I am sad no longer to have the inspirational leadership of Angela, who has been an absolute joy to work with, I feel more than confident that part of her legacy is an enormously strong team in all of our areas.” – Christopher Bailey
