Formerly head of diversity and inclusion for Major League Baseball, Renée Tirado will lead the luxury Italian fashion brand’s efforts “to put culture—self-expression and inclusivity—at the center of what we do,” said Gucci president and CEO Marco Bizzarri.

Following the July 15 appointment of Fiona Pargeter as head of diversity and inclusion at Chanel, Gucci on Tuesday announced that it has filled a similar position. Announced five months ago as part of a larger diversity and inclusion initiative, the position of global head of diversity, equity and inclusion at Gucci has been filled by Renée Tirado.

An attorney, Tirado previously served as the chief diversity and inclusion officer at Major League Baseball and in similar roles at global finance and insurance corporation AIG and the United States Tennis Association.
