LVMH Moet Hennessy Louis Vuitton SE has appointed Chris de Lapuente as chief executive and chairman of its selective retailing division from January, according to an internal announcement.

The French luxury-goods conglomerate said Monday that Mr. de Lapuente will continue to be a member of the executive committee. He has previously served as chief executive of beauty retailer Sephora.

LVMH added that it has reorganized its digital and information technology teams around two units--omnichannel and data, and the group IT--effective Jan. 20.

Michael David, Louis Vuitton vice president of client development and digital, has been appointed as chief omnichannel officer, the company said, while Franck Le Moal will lead the group IT division.

Meanwhile, Chief Digital Officer Ian Rogers will step down to join a Paris-based technology startup, but will retain an advisory role at LVMH, it said.
