ROME — Earlier this spring Andrea Perrone, who leads Brioni’s new executive team, traveled to Dallas to meet with Karen Katz and senior Neiman Marcus brass.
The Dallas trip capped off months of nonstop travel for the 37-year-old executive, who until recently had been accustomed to a much more even work schedule. Like the transatlantic jaunts before it—where Perrone met with executives at Saks Fifth Avenue and Barneys New York as well as top men’s editors—the Dallas meeting also served as a kind of road show to present Perrone and the new Brioni.
