La Redoute appoints Virginie Boudet: Virginie Boudet’s appointment as Director of Brand and Communications is a significant step forward for the illustrious northern French retailer La Redoute. The Deputy General Manager, Amélie Poisson, took over in 2022, and Boudet, an expert in brand transformation and creative strategy, will report directly to her. This hiring signifies the beginning of a new phase in La Redoute’s brand evolution, following Marie Guillemot’s departure.

Boudet has accumulated a wealth of knowledge over the course of her career, which she has built on a foundation of enthusiasm for brand building and innovative creativity. Her latest position as VP of brand, communications, and events at Seloger’s assets, a realty business, exemplifies her strategic thinking and capacity to spearhead significant changes. Before this, Boudet worked for several well-known fashion labels, starting with Petit Bateau in 2001, where she gained experience in advertising and visual art. Her experience with Aigle, IDKids, and Sarenza cemented her status as a prominent figure in the field of brand development and communications.

La Redoute

According to a news release, La Redoute is certain that Boudet can strengthen the brand’s reputation, improve its positioning, and raise the level of its brand expression. Boudet is well-suited to her new job thanks to her history of leading successful repositioning initiatives; her strategic, flexible, and creative mindset will fit right in with La Redoute’s goals of expansion and innovation.

The 2022 redesign of La Redoute’s logo and visual identity is only one example of the many changes the company has implemented in recent years. Being a major participant in the Galeries Lafayette group, the company has changed its strategy to include a wider variety of home and decorative items rather than only traditional textiles. La Redoute’s remarkable yearly business volume of nearly one billion euros and global customer base exceeding 8.8 million active users are contributed, in part, by its agility and commitment to serving the increasing requirements of its broad client base. This strategy pivot reflects that.

With Boudet at the helm, La Redoute is ready to continue its rise to the top of the French lifestyle and home essentials markets via innovation, creativity, and an unwavering dedication to quality.
