MILAN — Matthew Foley has been appointed global director of communication for Thom Browne, overseeing public relations, events, VIPs and celebrities. Foley is thus expanding his job description as he was already responsible for content strategy and social media since 2016. He reports to Tomaso Galli, senior vice president of marketing.
Tori Vinton, who joined Thom Browne in 2017 as vice president of global public relations, left the company in December.
The agreement was reached with Sandbridge Capital and the namesake designer for an enterprise valuation of about $500 million. Minority shareholder Stripe International is no longer an investor.
Browne, who founded the brand in 2001, is the sole other shareholder, and continues to hold the role of chief creative officer. The Thom Browne business remains independently run.
