Gabriele Maggio has been named Moschino's new General Manager, effective immediately. He succeeds Corrado Masini, who joined the company last September.
“The appointment of Gabriele Maggio represents an important step in our strategy aimed at securing a substantial growth for Moschino, within a global environment which throws challenges but also offers also opportunities,” said Massimo Ferretti, executive chairman of Moschino’s parent company Aeffe SpA, in a statement.
Moschino's creative director Jeremy Scott has been able to boost sales for the brand and increase their media presence. Maggio will be in charge of helping the brand further grow globally by acquiring new market shares.
Previously, Maggio worked for Gucci for six years, and prior to that he worked at Bottega Veneta.
Aeffe, a publicly listed company, also controls Philosophy di Lorenzo Serafini, Alberta Ferreti, and Pollini brands. They also produce and distribute the collections for Cedric Charlier and Jeremy Scott.
Last year, two new Moschino boutiques opened in the U.S., one in Los Angeles and one in New York. Recently, Moschino showed its women's collection with resort in Los Angeles.
