Alessandro Zanardo has been named to the role, effective immediately.

Zanardo started his career with Ferrari in 2002. He then joined Roland Berger Strategy Consultants in 2007. Between 2010 and 2021, he held a series of positions at Luxottica Group, both corporate and market roles, such as business development director in Russia, country manager in South Africa and, finally, general manager in Brazil.

“With the full acquisition of Thélios by the Group, we are delighted to begin this new chapter under the supervision of Alessandro,” said Andrea Guerra, CEO of LVMH Hospitality Excellence and a member of the LVMH executive committee.

Marcolin and LVMH Moët Hennessy Louis Vuitton created Thélios as a joint venture in 2017. Last year, LVMH bought Marcolin’s 49 percent stake in the venture.


WWD reported in December that Thélios produces for Berluti, Celine, Dior, Fendi, Fred, Kenzo, Loewe, Rimowa and Stella McCartney. “The general consensus is that Thélios will gradually produce eyewear collections for most if not all the brands under the LVMH umbrella,” the publication explained.
