SMCP Appoints New Board Chairman Following Reshuffle

The French fashion group said Monday that independent director Christophe Cuvillier will step into the role, following a vote last week to dismiss five board members associated with former majority owner Ruyi Group.

The shakeup at the owner of contemporary fashion labels Sandro, Maje and Claudie Pierlot comes amid a legal fight between Ruyi holding company European TopSoho and a group of lenders. The dispute has been ongoing since last October, when the Ruyi unit defaulted on €250 million ($285 million) in exchangeable bonds.
