Luxury fashion retailer Coach has announced the appointment of Ralph Lauren’s Fredrik Malm as its president of European and international divisions.

He will leave his role as president of sales at Ralph Lauren where he has worked since 2011.

Prior to this, Malm worked at Ecco for four years, where he acted as retail director.

In August it was revealed that the Coach’s current president of Europe Andrew Stanleik will depart the retailer to join beauty brand Coty.

Alongside Malm, Givency’s current US president Laura Dubin-Wander has been appointed to lead Coach’s North American division.

Both will report to chief executive Joshua Shulman, who was appointed in April.

In August Coach reported that it expected sales for its fiscal year 2018 to rise 30 per cent to between $5.8 billion (£4.48 billion) and $5.9 billion (£4.56 billion).

This comes just below the median Wall Street estimate of $5.92 billion (£4.57 billion).
