Burberry Group PLC said Wednesday that it has appointed Jonathan Akeroyd, currently Gianni Versace SpA's chief executive, as its new CEO.

Mr. Akeroyd will join British luxury-goods company Burberry on April 1, 2022. He has been Versace's CEO since June 2016, and previously held the same position at Alexander McQueen, from 2004 to 2016.

Burberry CEO Marco Gobetti in June announced he was leaving the group to join Salvatore Ferragamo SpA as its new chief executive.
