June Haynes Exits Valentino to Launch Consulting Firm

The senior vice president of retail has resigned from the company to start her own business, June Haynes Luxury Retail.

HAYNES’ NEXT STEP: June Haynes, senior vice president of retail at Valentino, has resigned from the company to start her own consulting business, June Haynes Luxury Retail. Her last day was Friday. At Valentino, Haynes was responsible for all Valentino boutiques in the U.S. She also managed all M Missoni boutiques owned by Valentino in North America. In 2007, Haynes was given additional responsibility to refine Valentino’s retail strategy in Japan.

Haynes started her retail career at Barneys New York, where she managed the designer floor. It was there that she met Domenico Dolce and Stefano Gabbana, when the two paid a visit to Barneys. The result of that meeting was an appointment to the post of manager at Dolce and Gabbana’s first boutique in North America: the flagship on Madison Avenue, which opened in 1997.

Haynes’s successor at Valentino hasn’t been named yet.
