Giuseppe Zanotti appoints new CEO
Italian luxury footwear label Giuseppe Zanotti has appointed Eugenio Manghi as its new CEO.
Manghi replaces Nicola Brandolese who was last week announced as the new managing director of Net-A-Porter.com.
He brings 20 years of experience in luxury fashion to his new role having most recently been CEO at Betty Blue SpA, which owns the Elisabetta Franchi luxury brand. Prior to this he was with the Max Mara group where, among other senior roles, he had been CEO of the Marella label.
“I’m delighted to join Giuseppe Zanotti’s team. Thanks to his vision and passion, he has made his label a successful player on the international luxury footwear market. I believe the brand has all the resources necessary to expand and meet the challenges of the future,” said Manghi.
Giuseppe Zanotti was founded in 1994 by the designer of the same name, who still heads up the business. Today it operates 100 stores globally and is available in more than 700 multi-brand retailers. Investment fund L Catterton holds a 30% stake in the company.
