Following the untimely death of founder Roberto Compagno in 2021, Slowear Venezia is ushering in a new era with a new CEO, Piero Braga, and a renewed board of directors.
Braga has deep retail and wholesale experience at companies such as Zegna, Tod's and most recently at Gucci, where he served as CEO of the Timepieces division, executive vice president of Indirect Channels, Outlet, Travel Retail and most recently as EVP Strategic Advisor & Board Member.
The appointment of Piero Braga is the latest measure of a broader restructuring triggered by a capital increase - led by Nuo Capital and followed by historical shareholders - that will open a new season for the apparel company founded in Venice in 1951.
In the process, the shareholders also renewed the Board of Directors: in addition to confirming Giorgio Delpiano, Paolo Ferrin (chairman) and Stefano Sassi, the Board welcomes Piero Braga and another new addition: Monica Marsilli - C-level executive of important organizations and with solid experience in purchasing and merchandising, at companies such as Gucci and Rinascente.
The new additions are aimed at accelerating Slowear's development plan, both in retail and distribution, while offering Slowear a clearer brand harmonization and an overall improvement of the collection offerings in terms of quality and style, in line with the brands' history.
