MILAN — Boosted by the performance of its footwear division and a good Christmas season, Tod’s SpA reported a 7.7 percent increase in 2008 sales to 707.5 million euros, or $1.04 billion at average exchange. This result was achieved despite sluggish leather goods sales and a slowdown in the U.S. market.
“The latest period of the year contributed in achieving the positive sales results released today,” said Diego Della Valle, chairman and chief executive officer of the group. “Thanks to the efficiency of our group’s structure, I believe that these results will be reflected in sound net income growth.”

"It's really hard sometimes. I think I have a reputation for being really tough and aggressive and pushy but I really am a very shy person who wants to be liked, and that's the conflict constantly. There's something that takes hold - I want people to like me, I don't want to be mean - but if I see something that just cries out to be answered, I go for it," says renowned NBC News correspondent Andrea Mitchell.
