Our relationship with North America (NORAM) is a long and important one. It extends back to our founder, Ermenegildo Zegna, who traversed the Atlantic in 1938 with the fabrics produced by his looms in Trivero under his arm and the names of New York’s finest Italian tailors in his pocket. ‘They are the ambassadors of our fabrics,’ he said.
While already an internationally successful company, this trip to New York began an important chapter in Zegna’s history; one that saw us grow and expand into the vertically-integrated company we are today. Our founder’s entrepreneurial spirit also persists. In 1983, Gildo, Ermenegildo’s grandson and our current CEO, toured the country to present Zegna’s ready-to-wear collection to speciality stores, establishing the longstanding relationships with retailers and clients that make America such a special market for our brand. This importance was marked by the formation of our subsidiary in 1975, a symbol of our enduring commitment.
Our activities in the NORAM region are all coordinated by our office in New York City. This office also supports our retail and sales channels in the USA and Canada, which includes over 20 of our own stores, as well as major wholesale accounts with department stores and specialty retailers. It’s a warm, welcoming working environment, with teams branching from Marketing and Merchandising to Human rRsources and Retail Operations.
