Furla names new chief executive
Furla has appointed former Clarks head Giorgio Presca as its new chief executive.
He will succeed the luxury brand’s chief operating officer, Devis Bassetto, who has been working in the chief executive role on an interim basis since April following the departure of Mauro Sabatini.
With 30 years’ experience in the fashion sector, Presca most recently worked in the same role at Clarks and prior to that headed up Golden Goose, Geox and Citizens of Humanity.
Giovanna Furlanetto, president of Fondazione Furla, said: ” I am delighted that George Presca joins Furla as chief executive, he is a skilled leader with a strong ability in reinforcing global fashion brands and driving profitable and safe growth.
“Mr Presca shares our values and our determination to establish Furla as a real democratic brand, the only Italian brand in its category. This appointment also stands to highlight my whole family’s willingness to continue with the full control of our business and lead it into the future.”
