Valentino strengthens its Management with the appointment of Matteo Di Pasquale as Human Resources Director
Paris, January 7, 2024
In the dynamic landscape of luxury fashion, the house of Valentino has announced a significant consolidation of its management with the promotion of Matteo Di Pasquale to the role of Human Resources Director.
Leveraging his experience within the prestigious Roman couture house since 2021, Di Pasquale has rapidly climbed the ranks, initially taking charge as Director of Remuneration and Social Benefits.
Di Pasquale’s promotion, which came into effect in January, follows an interim period that began last July after the departure of Rosa Santamaria Maurizio.
By assuming this position permanently, Di Pasquale now reports directly to Jacopo Venturini, CEO of Valentino, marking a further step in the brand’s commitment to an employee-centric vision.
Di Pasquale’s professional journey is distinguished by notable experiences in the HR departments of various multinational companies, including Accenture, Hay Group, Mercedes-Benz, and AbbVie, prior to joining Valentino. His education at LUISS Guido Carli University and the European School of Management and Technology (ESMT) Berlin laid the foundation for his expertise in leadership and management.
This strategic change follows a series of executive reshuffles within the house, underscoring a desire for stability and internal growth.
With revenues reaching 1.42 billion euros in 2022, up 15% from the previous year, Valentino demonstrates an upward economic trajectory.
Last July, Alessio Vannetti’s move to Gucci triggered a reshuffling, consolidating Sabato De Sarno’s position at Valentino. Subsequently, Laurent Bergame was appointed Commercial Director, Andrea Cappi took on the role of Director of E-commerce and Omnichannel, and Yigit Turhan was promoted to Marketing Director.
This restructuring also occurs in the context of a broader strategic partnership following Kering’s acquisition of a 30% stake in Valentino for 1.7 billion euros in cash.
This partnership with the Qatari investment fund Mayhoola, the main shareholder of Valentino, paves the way for potential shareholder evolution by 2028.
Di Pasquale’s appointment is a testament to Valentino’s policy of prioritizing continuity and strengthening its management teams.
His mission will be crucial in navigating the complex waters of the luxury market while preserving the brand’s internal values and culture.
His colleague-centered vision is already praised by the company as a sign of Valentino’s commitment to reinforcing its human foundations while adapting to the contemporary demands of the sector.
With these strategic moves, Valentino not only reinforces its leadership but also stabilizes its future, demonstrating adaptability and resilience that will be essential in the coming years in the luxury sector.
