Abercrombie & Kent (A&K) has announced some changes to its executive line-up, with a former Silversea CEO chosen to lead the luxury wholesaler.
Following completion of an investment in the A&K Group by Heritage Group, Manfredi Lefebvre will become co-chairman alongside A&K founder Geoffrey Kent.
“We will be working together to translate our shared vision for the future into concrete strategies that will allow A&K to reach its goals in the next phase of development, building on seven years of double-digit growth,” Kent said.
“We are pleased to welcome Amerigo Perasso as the new chief executive officer of the Abercrombie & Kent Group. He will be working closely with us and the board of directors to implement our strategic vision.
“He brings substantial operating expertise in luxury leisure travel and cruising to our organisation.”
Perasso is a business lawyer who spent 14 years at Silversea, holding various positions prior to becoming CEO. In recent years, he has served as an advisor on mergers and acquisitions to investment funds and private investors.
