New CEO for Flos

(Italy) – Design Holding appoints Roberta Silva as Flos CEO.

Roberta Silva has been selected by the Group’s shareholders together with Piero Gandini, who sold Flos to Design Holding and recently stepped down from the position.

Silva’s appointment is part of the efforts of the holding company and its subsidiaries to further strengthen their management teams, by recruiting managers with a high international profile and able to contribute to the growth of the Group led by Chairman and CEO Gabriele Del Torchio.

In her role as CEO of Flos, Silva will carry forward the brand’s strong identity and history of excellence, whilst guiding the company into a new phase of growth that will enable it to successfully address the ongoing changes in the sector and the challenges of an increasingly global marketplace.

Previously the Italian Country Manager of Bose, a US multi-national manufacturer of high-end electronics, the Group promoted Silva to an international role appointing her as Head of Bose’s Global Direct Retail Network.  She left Bose after having led the company into a new phase of strategic commercial development and brand enhancement. Prior to Bose, Roberta had senior roles at the Kraft Group.
