A Prada spokeswoman confirmed that Francois Kress has joined Prada USA as Chief Executive Officer.
Kress was previously the managing director of Bulgari's North American jewelry, watch and accessories division. His Prada successor, Graziano de Boni, left the brand in October to head the Reed Krakoff division at Coach, Inc.
No further details were available and the company has no plans to formally announce his hire. Way to welcome someone into the company, huh?
