(Reuters) - Tommy Hilfiger owner PVH Corp
Larsson, a former CEO of Ralph Lauren Corp
His appointment was part of PVH's plan to find a successor to Chirico, who has been at the helm since 2006.
Larsson has already been at the forefront of major decisions PVH has taken to tackle the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic, including cutting hundreds of jobs in North America and shuttering 162 retail stores.
Chirico, 63, will continue to serve as the company's chairman, PVH said.
