MILAN — Alessandro Benetton is taking a step back from his role as chairman of the family-owned Benetton Group SpA and, for the first time in the history of the 49-year old company, a non-family member will lead the business.
Following a board meeting on Thursday, Gianni Mion was appointed non-executive chairman. Mion remains vice chairman of the Benetton family’s holding Edizione Srl, whose investments range from highway catering and communications to real estate and agriculture. A longtime go-to executive for the Benettons, Mion sits on the board of other family investments, including Autogrill SpA, Eurostazioni SpA, World Duty Free SpA and Sintonia SpA.

"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.
