Kering has announced the appointment of Mehdi Benabadji as CEO of Brioni, with effect from January 1, 2020. He will report to Jean-François Palus, group managing director of Kering. Kering is a French international luxury group based in Paris, France, and specialised in luxury goods. Kering promotes various modern and sustainable luxury brands.

Benabadji has held a series of operational and executive positions within Kering since 2003. Most recently, he was chief operations officer, in charge of the group’s logistics and industrial activities. He is very familiar with Brioni, having been director of strategy and development of the house after its acquisition by Kering in 2011. His mission now will be to consolidate the repositioning of Brioni and to support its international development, Kering said in a press release.

Benabadji takes over from Fabrizio Malverdi, who has decided to leave the group to pursue a new professional challenge. Kering would like to thank him warmly for his commitment and his contribution as CEO of Brioni in recent years. Benabadji began his career in 1995 as a consultant. For eight years, he held a range of positions in luxury houses before joining Kering in 2003. Since 2012, he has carried out a variety of executive roles, and most recently as chief operations officer, in charge of the group’s integrated logistics and industrial activities. Benabadji is a graduate of France’s ESSEC Business School.
