Corneliani, the leading Italian luxury menswear specialist, has appointed industry veteran Paolo Roviera as chief executive officer, effective September 5 2016.

With nearly two decades of luxury industry experience, Roviera has acquired unrivalled sector expertise and established a proven track record of leading renowned luxury menswear brands through significant phases of international growth. Most recently, Roviera was the chief executive officer of Pal Zileri and head of EMEA at Ermenegildo Zegna.

Hazem Ben-Gacem, chairman of the Board of Directors of Corneliani and the head of Investcorp's Private Equity activities in Europe said, “Paolo is joining Corneliani at a very exciting time as we embark on an ambitious global expansion strategy. With Paolo's deep knowledge of the industry and indisputable experience leading fashion brands, we are thrilled that he is coming on board to lead the firm through the growth journey ahead.”

Roviera said, “Over the years, Corneliani has successfully positioned itself as a leading luxury menswear specialist known for its unique tailoring and high quality products. I am honoured to have the opportunity to build upon the Company's heritage and legacy to take the Company to its next phase of expansion and growth. There is tremendous opportunity at Corneliani to explore innovation within the sector and accelerate the brand's global presence across a variety of markets and I look forward to working alongside Corneliani's management team, talented employees and international partners in driving this vision forward.”

In addition to Roviera's appointment, Stefano Gaudioso will also be joining Corneliani as General Merchandising Manager. Gaudioso re-joins Corneliani from Pal Zileri where he was leading global merchandising. Prior to Pal Zileri, Gaudioso held senior merchandising roles at Ermenegildo Zegna.

In June 2016, leading global private equity firm, Investcorp, acquired a majority stake in Corneliani. (GK)
