(NEW YORK) Ralph Lauren International is bringing luxury fashion vet Daniel Lalonde on board as its first-ever president; he will assume the newly-minted role on January 23. Formerly president and CEO at Moet & Chandon since July 2010, based in Paris, Lalonde served at Louis Vuitton North America from January 2007 prior to his move to Moet. Previously, Lalonde served as president and CEO of LVMH's watch and jewelry division for North America from 2002 to 2006, and was commended with his market flourishing of brands like TAG Heuer in that capacity. The Ontario native attended the University of Waterloo and earned an MBA at INSEAD in Paris, and his resume is studded with stints as a consultant at Deloitte and Covanta Holding, director of stores at Häagen-Dazs, and president and COO at Nestlé-owned Nespresso, prior to joining LVMH. In his new capacity, Lalonde will report directly to Roger Farah, president and COO at Ralph Lauren Corporation.
