This week Safilo announced the appointment of Robert Polet as the new CEO of the Group and the successor or Melchert Groot. Polet previously worked from 2004 to 2011 as the CEO of the Gucci Group where he, after and despite the fact that Tom Ford left, was very successful. Before joining Gucci he was the President of Unilever’s Ice Cream Division. His transfer from the food industry to fashion in 2004 was quite remarkable but worked out very well. Last year Robert Polet held a lecture at Dutch university Nijenrode at the same event where Optitrade and Safilo showed the newest collections of (sun)glasses.
