LVMH is expanding the remit of its head of hotels, Andrea Guerra, to include overseeing Italian fashion brands Fendi and Loro Piana from January, the French luxury conglomerate said on Friday.

Fendi Chief Executive Serge Brunschwig and Loro Piana boss Fabio d’Angelantonio will report to Guerra, who is also a member of LVMH’s executive committee.
