Following news of Marco Bortoletti’s imminent departure from Fashion Box (as disclosed on the Sportswear International website two weeks ago) the new CEO has been announced as Gaetano Sallorenzo. Fashion Box is the parent company of Replay, Replay&Sons and We Are Replay.

Fifty-year-old Sallorenzo has worked across a variety of major fashion companies throughout his career, including GFT Holding, Ralph Lauren, Liz Claiborne and Benetton Group.

Between 2001 and 2006 he worked as president of the Giorgio Armani New York office and starting from 2006 was President & CEO for Calvin Klein Jeanswear, responsible for Calvin Klein Jeans, CK, Accessories and Calvin Klein Jeans Kids for Europe and Asia.
