Stuart Weitzman Taps Marketing Exec

Stuart Weitzman Holdings LLC announced Monday that luxury veteran Susan Duffy has been named SVP of global marketing and communications, effective immediately.

In the newly created position, Duffy, who has worked for Chopard and Chanel, will be responsible for developing and implementing global marketing strategies within the brand’s wholesale, retail and e-commerce divisions.

“I was enticed by the brand, as well as the man,” said Duffy, who will work out of the New York offices. “Stuart’s passion for the business is contagious, and there is such a collective wisdom, technical expertise, style and history to build on.”

Duffy has more than 20 years of experience in luxury brand advertising, marketing and public relations, and most recently worked as a brand consultant for private clients.

She will report directly to Weitzman.

“[Duffy’s] experience with leading luxury brands to an elevated worldwide profile will support our strategic goals to create an enhanced global presence,” said Weitzman.
