Prior to his role at Diesel, Bruso held the role of retail operations manager at Benetton between 1999 and 2002.

Benetton’s board of directors said Airoldi underwrote the “definition and launch of the company refocus”, honing in on selected markets and launching a redesign of the brand’s stores.

Bruso brings a wealth of fashion retail experience to the role, acting as chief executive of Diesel since 2013, following a stint as chief executive at Furla in the US in 2008.
