Corneliani Appoints New CEO
MILAN — The revolving door at Corneliani continues to spin.
The Italian men’s wear brand said Monday that it has appointed Giorgio Brandazza its new chief executive officer.
Brandazza’s previous experiences include a role as chief operating officer of Calvin Klein Jeanswear and international business development manager of Italian men’s wear brand Boggi. His résumé includes a role as group managing director of Elie Saab and ceo of Boglioli. He is senior professor of the School of Management — fashion and design — of SDA Bocconi and senior faculty member of MAFED, or Master in Fashion, Experience and Design Management.
He succeeds Luigi Ferrando, who had been ceo for only a year. Ferrando took over from Paolo Roviera when the latter exited in September 2016, two years into the job. Ferrando joined Corneliani, known for its sleek tailoring and high-end quality products, from a different sector, as he leveraged experience in furniture. His curriculum lists managerial positions at Unopiù and Arquati as well as lighting firms Targetti and Louis Poulsen.
Corneliani is controlled by Bahrain-based Investcorp, which in 2016 invested in the storied company, founded by Carlalberto Corneliani and his late brother Claudio in 1958.
