Last week Cavalli announced the nomination of Robert Donofrio as Group Chief Executive Officer of the US subsidiary.
The nomination of Mr. Donofrio is part of the management structuring program started last September with the appointment of Gianluca Brozzetti as Cavalli Group CEO—a program which has the objective of rationalization and the growth of the Group in the main foreign markets and on some of the underdeveloped product categories.
“The appointment of Robert Donofrio in the US continues the program of building a professional management team to ensure further growth of my Group,” said designer Roberto Cavalli, “I particularly love the US market; its energy is very close to my sensibility. I am sure that the [professionalism] of Robert Donofrio, together with our creativity, will allow our Group to maximize all opportunities in one of the most important markets for fashion/luxury products.”
Last December, Cavalli opened a new 10,000 square foot store at the new Crystals in Las Vegas, which joins existing outposts in New York, Bal Harbour, Dallas, Beverly Hills, Costa Mesa and Woodbury. Cavalli is also carried in several fine department and specialty stores.
