It’s Dino Pace, a Degree in Economics and Social Sciences at the University “Luigi Bocconi” of Milan, the new world CEO at Perfume Holding, replacing Enrico Ceccato who will step into the Chairman position of the group.
An Italian manager, well-known in the world of luxury and selective products, Pace was professionally born within the watch industry, at first as brand manager of BREIL at Binda, then at the SWATCH GROUP, where he joined as sales manager of the lines SWATCH and CK Watches, later promoted to Division director of SWATCH.
However it was at COTY, that his managerial career experienced a relevant turn, where he came into contact with the world of cosmetics and selective distribution covering for five years the role of Managing Director of the Italian Branch of the French-American Group.
After experiencing the world of jewellery/watch industry and that of perfumery, his last position was to complete his professional profile, which indeed has always crossed sectors paying particular attention to brand positioning and distribution environment. In fact in 2008 Pace joined the fashion world entering Diesel Italia as Managing Director.
All key company functions will report to Dino Pace: both marketing and product development based in Paris and administration, financial control, production and human resources management based in Parma; as well as regional sales managers who are responsible for worldwide distribution.
Dino Pace states: “Perfume Holding represents a great opportunity to me, since it is a company with excellent performances which is present and appreciated all over the world. When thinking of giving my contribution to next years’ strategies, in order to seize all development opportunities that we can, is certainly a fascinating challenge”.
