Former Unilever chief new CEO of Safilo

13/04/2018
Former Unilever Italia boss Mr Angelo Trocchia will take over as the CEO of Italian multinational eyewear company Safilo, after Ms Luisa Delgado resigned from the position at the end of February citing personal reasons.

The company thanked Delgado in a statement announcing the change, and said she had helped prepare the company for the future after negotiating a complicated transition period.


“Luisa Delgado has led the company through a period of transition during which its largest licensor, Gucci, changed the relationship from licensee to supplier. In order to reposition the company following this important change, Ms Delgado has added to the brand portfolio Moschino, Givenchy, Elie Saab, havaianas, rag&bone, Swatch and Rebecca Minkoff, and renewed the licenses of Dior, Jimmy Choo, Tommy Hilfiger, Max Mara, Kate Spade, Juicy Couture and Saks,” the release stated

“She also opened new emergent markets with new direct subsidiaries and via global partners, and reinforced the product capabilities of Safilo with the new Design Studios, the integration of Lenti Manufacturing and Safilo’s Product School.”

Trocchia officially joined Safilo on April 1 and is expected to have his position confirmed at the annual shareholders meeting on April 24.

“Safilo is pleased to appoint an executive with a solid and international track record and a comprehensive 360° background in business management, able to lead the company through a successful development, supported by the current leadership team,” a press release announcing the appointment stated.

An update of Safilo’s long-term strategic plan has been scheduled for the second half of 2018.
