Safilo CEO Luisa Delgado Speaks at Financial Times Summit


(Press Release) Safilo CEO Luisa Delgado served as one of the executive speakers at Financial Times’ recent FT Business of Luxury Summit, hosted in association with Michael Dyens & Co. The three-day event took place at the Ritz-Carlton hotel in San Francisco from May 22-24.

A thought leadership gathering for senior luxury executives, industry leaders, corporate decision-makers and financiers from around the world, the theme for this year’s event was “New Creative Synergies.” Delgado participated in a panel called “Beyond Luxury, the New Frontier” in which industry insiders described how luxury is evolving beyond the runway to embrace eyewear, shoes and interiors – and how a convergence of millennial tastes and new technology are driving this change. Delgado was joined by Andrea Bonomi, founder and managing principal, Investindustrial; Thomas Chauvet, head of European luxury good equity research, Citi; and panel moderator Rachel Sanderson, Milan correspondent for the Financial Times.

Delgado was among 34 speakers at the Business of Luxury Summit which included artists, economists and executives leading the creative revolutions from companies such as Saint Laurent, Levi’s, Moda Operandi, Tiffany & Co, Barney’s New York, Oscar de la Renta, Google, Coach, Diane von Furstenberg Studio and Tesla, among others.
