Giovanni Burani joined MBFG in 1989 with responsibility for the Group’s strategic development. As CEO of MBFG, Mr. Burani was the driving force behind the Group’s Initial Public Offering in July 2000, and has led the Group to become one the leading players in the accessible luxury goods market with Apparel, Leather Goods, and Fashion Jewellery collections created, produced, and distributed world-wide under its own brands and under license for renowned international designers.

Giovanni Burani steered the company from € 150 million of revenues generated in the year 2000 to € 668 million of revenues in 2006 via an aggressive expansion strategy. The Group’s revenue growth over the past six years (+27%) has been accompanied by significant strategic, operational and organisational developments spearheaded by Mr. Burani which have driven the more than proportional growth in operating margins (+47% Ebitda) and net earnings (+64%) over the same period.
