Shauna Brook Joins Ermenegildo Zegna Group As SVP of Marketing and Communications
(NEW YORK) The Ermenegildo Zegna Group has a new marketing maven on deck: Shauna Brook is joining the Italian company as SVP of marketing and communications. She comes to Zegna from Revolate Holdings, where she served as chief marketing officer. Prior to that, Brook was VP of global marketing and communications at David Yurman from 2007 to 2012. The marketing talent also spent 11 years as VP of marketing and special events at Giorgio Armani. Brook will be based in Ermenegildo Zegna’s NYC offices for her new gig.
In addition to the company’s eponymous label, it produces Z Zegna and Agnona, and manufactures luxe suits for tony design houses. Stefano Pilati was tapped as head designer at Ermenegildo Zegna in January 2013, joining the company from his creative director post at Yves Saint Laurent. Yesterday, Z Zegna was named Pitti Uomo’s menswear guest designer; the collection will be shown at the chic tradeshow in Florence come June. Ermenegildo Zegna Group acquired cashmere-centric line Agnona in 1999. Dree Hemingway fronted Agnona’s critically-acclaimed Fall 2014 showing, and Inez van Lamsweerde and Vinoodh Matadin have shot the label’s looks. Brook will spearhead marketing efforts for Ermenegildo Zegna Group’s trifecta of labels.
