GUESS’ NEW MAN: Jacques Levy, who stepped down last week from his post as president and chief executive officer of Sephora Worldwide, has joined Guess as a founder’s advisor. Levy will collaborate closely with Paul Marciano, as well as the executive and retail teams in developing key marketing and customer relationship management strategies worldwide. “Jacques is one of the most prominent and accomplished retail executives of the last decade. The strategy and consistency he created at Sephora is something unique that made the competition irrelevant. He joins Maurice and I to further the continued global expansion for all of the Guess retail concepts,” said Marciano, adding that Guess plans to open at least another 1,000 stores in the next three to five years. Levy previously worked at Staples International, Disney, Darty and Galeries Lafayette.
