Meeting the Quorum: What You’re Doing Wrong and How to Fix It

rebranding

Following the acquisition of Versace in 2018, Michael Kors Holdings announced they will change its name to Capri Holdings starting January 2, 2019. John Idol, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Michael Kors Holdings, believes having Versace in its portfolio made them one of the leading global fashion groups in the world.
