CEO, Diesel North America
Stefano began his professional experience at Diesel, working in different areas of the company (from production to marketing), to become first Diesel’s 5-pocket (denim) Brand Manager. Later he was appointed as Strategic Brand Alliances Director, creating and managing some of the brand’s most important global collaborations, from a limited-edition sneaker series with Adidas Originals, to the worldwide partnership with Ducati.

In 2011, Stefano became Director of Corporate Development of OTB (the parent company of Diesel, Maison Margiela, Marni, Paula Cademartori, Viktor&Rolf, Staff International and Brave Kid). Two years later he was named co-CEO with the task to design the group’s new governance, and to guide the People & Organization function in building the managerial team of the future.

In 2017, he was named CEO of Diesel North America, Diesel being the biggest of the group’s brands and North America a key area of development for the group. The move marks the company’s decision to strengthen its presence and leadership in the market, with an emphasis on maintaining a strong voice as a denim leader.
