LVMH Moet Hennessy Louis Vuitton, the world's leading luxury products group, announces the appointment of Lisa Montague as Chief Executive Officer of Loewe, the celebrated Spanish leather goods and accessories Maison. She will be based in Loewe's headquarters in Madrid and will report to Pierre-Yves Roussel, CEO LVMH Fashion Division.

At Loewe, Lisa will once again work alongside Stuart Vevers who joined Loewe as Creative Director in January 2008, having previously worked at Mulberry and before that at Louis Vuitton.
