Jenny Galimberti New CEO of JW Anderson

WWD has reported that J.W. Anderson, after months of searching named new CEO of JW Anderson.  J.W. Anderson has been without a CEO since the end of last year when Simon Whitehouse left the position after three years due to personal reasons.

What does someone from a communications role have to bring to the table as a CEO? In an age where fashion is heavily driven by social media, it makes perfect sense.

Born in Northern Ireland in 1984, Jonathan William Anderson is known for his provocative and androgynous designs. He studied men’s wear at the London College of Fashion, graduating in 2005, and launched his JW Anderson fashion label in 2008.
