CHANGES IN ITALY: Isaia & Isaia SpA president Gianluca Isaia has been named chief executive officer of his family’s luxury men’s wear company, which was founded in Naples in 1957 by his father Enrico Isaia.
“Gianluca has proven he has both the leadership and the skills to drive our company towards more ambitious goals,” said Isaia & Isaia SpA co-founder Corrado Isaia. Gianluca Isaia succeeds Giovanni Mannucci, who joined the Neapolitan firm in 2007. Mannucci, who previously served several international companies including Hugo Boss and Deloitte Consulting, has been tapped by Italian men’s wear label Boglioli as its new ceo.
“Giovanni is a pragmatic, multi-cultural and modern manager and he is a great team motivator,” said Paolo Gambarini, co-founder of Wise, the private equity fund which acquired Boglioli in 2007. “I’m sure he will be the right leader for Boglioli’s future.”
