Stefano ROSSO

CEO, OTB / Board of Directors, H-Farm

Stefano Rosso was born on June 1st, 1979 in Marostica, North East Italy.

After attending high school in Bassano del Grappa, he left Italy to pursue his studies at New York’s Fashion Institute of Technology, where he completed a BA in International Trade and Marketing.

He began his work experience outside the family company, collaborating with brands like ZooYork, part of the Ecko Unlimited group.

Stefano returned to Italy in 2005 and began his professional experience at Diesel, working in different areas of the company (from production to marketing), to become first Diesel’s 5 Pockets (denim) Brand Manager, and then Strategic Brand Alliances Director, creating and managing some of the brand’s most important global collaborations, from a limited edition sneakers series with adidas Originals, to the worldwide partnership with Ducati.

In 2011, Stefano Rosso left Diesel for a new position: he became Director of Corporate Development of OTB, the parent company of Diesel, Maison Margiela, Marni, Viktor&Rolf, Staff International (manufacturing and distributing license agreements with DSquared², Just Cavalli, Vivienne Westwood Red Label and Man, and Marc Jacobs Men) and Brave Kid (specialized in childrenswear production and distribution for licensed brands Diesel, Marni, DSquared² and John Galliano).

In 2013, Stefano was named CEO of OTB with the specific responsibility of designing the group’s corporate governance and guiding the People & Organization function, with the goal to build the managerial team of the future. He plays a key role in the development strategy of the group, with a special focus on new acquisitions. Stefano is also President of Bassano Virtus Soccer Team, and Managing Director of Red Circle Investments, the family’s investment company. He sits on the Board of Directors of H-Farm (first digital start-up incubator in Italy) and EcorNaturaSì (biggest organic products supplier and store chain in Italy), and he is the cofounder of the Red Room Party.
