Giuseppe Zanotti appoints Eugenio Manghi as CEO
Eugenio Manghi has joined the ranks of Italian luxury footwear label Giuseppe Zanotti as its new CEO. Manghi, 50, a manager with a 20-year experience in the fashion industry, has replaced Nicola Brandolese, who left Giuseppe Zanotti for luxury e-tailer Net-a-Porter.
Since 2015, Manghi worked as the CEO of Betty Blue SpA, owner of women’s ready-to-wear label Elisabetta Franchi. Before then, Manghi held various senior posts within the Max Mara group, including that of 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 in San Mauro Pascoli, Italy, and is currently distributed in over 70 countries via a network of nearly 100 monobrand stores and 710 multibrand retailers. The L Catterton investment fund (an investor in, among others, Sandro, Maje, Gant, Pepe Jeans and Hackett) holds a 30% stake in Giuseppe Zanotti, which is still run by the eponymous designer and founder.
