Prince William - Issa London Appoint Angelina Ypma As Ceo

Issa London has appointed Angelina Ypma as its new CEO.

Angelina has joined the clothing company - famed after one of its blue dresses was worn by Britain's Duchess Catherine when she announced her engagement to Prince William - after previously working as managing director of Bulgari UK and Ireland.

She is quoted by Vogue as saying: ''I am delighted to be joining Issa at this important and exciting time in the development of the business.

''I see many parallels between Issa and the brands that I have previously helped to build, but most importantly huge potential.

''During my career to date, I have focused on translating the potential of brands into larger businesses via various distribution channels, most notably across the Far East for Bulgari, Chanel, Cartier and Lanvin.

''I relish the challenge of fully realising the potential of Issa into an international brand to match and surpass those that I have worked on in the past.''

Angelina replaces Anil Tanna, who is retiring after being at Issa London since Camilla Al Fayed - the daughter of Mohamed Al Fayed - took a controlling stake in the company last July.

Anil said in a statement: ''I have greatly enjoyed the varied challenges of the last twelve months and am very proud of the progress achieved by the team at Issa in such a short space of time.

''As some of you are already aware, I have been planning to retire for some time and I believe that now is an appropriate time to step down. I have always held a strong belief in the potential and quality of the brand and believe that we have now placed Issa on a strong footing for its continued development and growth as a business.''
