Holly Rush has been appointed by Luxottica as president of its wholesale operations in North America, replacing Andrea Dorigo who is planning to do something outside the group. Rush will report to Paolo Alberti, Luxottica's global executive vice president of wholesale operations. She joined the group's North American subsidiary in March 2011 as senior vice president of sales after working in various sales management roles at L'Oréal and other big companies. She was listed by Vision Monday last year as one of the “most influential women” in the optical sector.
