Luxottica says China head Ciarlariello has left

Luxottica's Greater China head of wholesale and retail Paolo Ciarlariello has left the company, the Italian eyewear maker said on Friday in answer to a request from Reuters.

The company did not give any details about the departure of Ciarlariello, who had joined the maker of Ray Ban sunglasses back in 2007 and had previously been head of wholesale for Asia.

China accounts for around 3 percent of Luxottica's revenues, which totaled 9 billion euros ($10 billion) last year.

Luxottica has seen a number of management changes over the past two years following the departure of long-standing Chief Executive Andrea Guerra and the return of founder and key shareholder Leonardo Del Vecchio at the helm of the group.
