Italian fashion powerhouse Valentino has confirmed Matteo Di Pasquale as their permanent Chief Human Resources Officer, after initially serving as Interim in this role.

Following the departure of Rosa Santamaria Maurizio, who moved to competitor Prada last July, Di Pasquale stepped in as the Compensation and Benefits Director, having joined Valentino in 2021.

Effective from January 1st, 2024, Di Pasquale now holds a permanent position, reporting directly to CEO Jacopo Venturini. His background includes stints at renowned companies such as Mercedes-Benz, AbbVie, Accenture, and Hay Group, showcasing a solid track record in HR.

Valentino underwent a significant change last year with luxury giant Kering acquiring a 30% stake in the company for €1.7 billion, with the potential for complete ownership. This move is part of a broader strategic collaboration between Mayhoola, Valentino’s owner, and Kering. There’s a possibility of Mayhoola becoming a shareholder in Kering in the future.

Following these changes, Valentino reshuffled its top leadership team. Alessio Vannetti, the former Chief Brand Officer, departed to join Gucci, alongside Valentino’s current Creative Director Sabato De Sarno.

Valentino also welcomed new leaders, including Yigit Turhan as Chief Marketing Officer, Andrea Cappi as Chief E-commerce and Omnichannel Officer, and Laurent Bergamo as Chief Commercial Officer, marking a significant shift in their C-suite lineup.
