Bottege Veneta’s Latest Departure

By  |  2 Comments

Bottega Veneta is in need of some help this summer. Tomas Maier in mid-June, the creative director departed the luxury Italian fashion house after 17 years at the helm. Now marketing director, Lisa Pomerantz is departing.

In an internal note, the Kering-owned brand thanked the manager for her past work, particularly in regards to communication and strategic digital marketing. The note confirmed that Pomerantz will leave Bottega Veneta at the end of the week, Friday, July 13. Her duties will be taken over by CEO Claus-Dietrich Lars, who was appointed head of the label in September 2016, according to a 2018 Fashion Network report.

The company noted that Pomerantz was leaving “to pursue other projects” and thanked her “for her vision in creating a Strategic Global Digital Marketing and Brand Communications platform.”

Pomerantz joined Bottega Veneta in 2017 after six years as senior vice president of global communications and marketing at Michael Kors.

According to a 2018 Women’s Wear Daily report, This was Pomerantz’s second stint at the Italian house. She had previously been in charge of global communications for nine years, working alongside creative director Tomas Maier, whose departure from Bottega Veneta was revealed last month. At Kors, she was responsible for all communication aspects, global brand strategy and brand marketing activities.

Before joining the American brand, Pomerantz briefly headed her own consultancy, working with Carolina Herrera, among others. A graduate of The University of Texas in Austin, she has also held roles at Giorgio Armani, Donna Karan and Céline, according to a 2018 Women’s Wear Daily report.

The brand is currently strengthening its current store base– recently, Bottega Veneta renovated its Paris store on rue du Faubourg-Saint-Honoré, making it more vibrant to the eye, while it has also recently relocated its Madrid store from Ortega y Gasset street to number 70 Calle Serrano 70, and in doing so, doubling its size to 550 square metres, according to a 2018 Fashion Network report.

I tend to focus my attention outwards and am drawn to the external world of action. I learn a lot about the world through experience. Focusing on what I have seen, heard, or touched, gives me the ability to develop a practical and realistic outlook on the world. Making decisions based on impersonal criteria like principles and logic is very important to me.I accept responsibility for my actions. When I succeed, I accept the satisfaction of the achievement, and if I do fail at something, I learn from it and do better next time. I feel confident in my abilities and am accepting of myself. I have good time management skills. I am able to fit the most important things in life into my schedule. I have a strong sense of goal commitment.
