Brunswick Group handles media for Italian luxury brand Zegna as it debuted on the New York Stock Exchange on Dec. 20 via a SPAC deal with European private equity group Investindustrial.
Guido Zegna, grandson and namesake of founder of the 111-year-old company, said he is very proud to head the first Italian fashion company listed in New York.
His family controls about 66 percent of the publicly-traded company.
He believes the company is well-positioned to accelerate the growth of its Zegna and Thom Browne brands, which are currently at pre-pandemic levels, while building on their heritage, ethos of sustainability and unique craftsmanship.
Zegna products are sold in more than 500 stores in 80 countries. Its luxury textile laboratory platform preserves artisanal mills that produce the finest Italian fabrics.
Brunswick Group’s Brendan Riley, Lidia Fornasiero and Marie Jensen handle Zegna.
Maitland’s David Sturken and Jonathan Cook represent Investindustrial.
