Italian Sixty Group has named Michel Lhoste as its new General Manager. Lhoste most previously held the position as General Manager of clothing company Belstaff and before that was General Manager for Fashion Box and Slowear. In the past, he had also worked for Remy Cointreau, Salvatore Ferragamo and silk manufacturer Mantero.

He will directly report to Pietro Bongiovanni, CEO, whose trust was recently reconfirmed by Wicky Hassan and Renato Rossi who founded the company in 1989. The enlarged management team will head the relaunch of the group according to its different brands' DNA (Miss Sixty, Energie, Killah, Murphy & Nye and Refrigiwear) as well as the consolidation and growth in local and global markets.

"I'm happy to become part of this group," commented Lhoste. “I'm aware of the crucial present time for the company with its important and complex development plans facing the difficult worldwide market situation. This new task will be an exciting challenge."
