CEO and President of H&M

REQUEST BOOKING INFORMATION

Karl-Johan Persson Biography

Karl-Johan Persson is the CEO and president of the fashion company Hennes & Mauritz (H&M), which was founded by his grandfather Erling Persson.

Persson attended the European Business School in London from 1996, majoring in Business and Economics, graduating in 2002. In 2001, Persson purchased an events management business, which established itself as the leading events management company in Scandinavia. The business was successfully sold in 2007 to MCI. In 2005, he joined H&M in an operational role, steadily working his way up to head of expansion and head of business development in 2007, before being appointed CEO in 2009 to succeed Rolf Eriksen.

Persson shook up the fashion retail industry when he boldly chose to make a plus-sized model the face of H&M's swimsuit collection. He also picked curvaceous Beyoncé to star in the summer ad campaign. He said that many models the brand has featured in the past were too thin, leading to speculation that other brands should follow his example.

After three years of e-commerce promises, H&M finally debuted its dedicated online store in August 2013. It offers its entire catalog plus additional sizes and styles.
