CHANGES AT L.K. BENNETT: Robert Bensoussan has taken over as chief executive officer of the British accessories and ready-to-wear brand L.K. Bennett. He replaces Didier Drouet, who has left the company after a little over a year in the job. Bensoussan had been serving as the company’s executive chairman and is its shareholder of reference. He had served as ceo before Drouet.

Bensoussan’s companies, Sirius Equity and Phoenix Equity Partners, purchased Bennett in 2008.

Drouet started his career at L’Oréal in 1984 and joined Cartier in 1992. He has held a number of senior executive positions in companies including Salvatore Ferragamo and LVMH Moët Hennessy Louis Vuitton, where he was ceo of Emilio Pucci.
