Changing of the guards at Scabal

Changing of the guards at Scabal

Belgian fashion label Scabal, specialised in custom-made suits and luxury tissues, has rearranged its management team. CEO Gregor Thissen will become executive chairman, giving Stefano Rivera from Italy the daily control.

From car tires to highbrow men’s fashion

Rivera only joined Scabal in June and had officially become its new CEO in September, as stated by the fashion label. The Italian-born CEO has built up an extensive amount of experience seeing how he has worked for smaller and large international marketing, production and distribution companies. During his career he has worked in several locations all across Europe.

 

A remarkable fact is that Rivera has no background in fashion, as he had been the European retail director for tire manufacturer Bridgestone and the managing director retail EMEA for Goodyear Dunlop.

 

"Change manager"

He does have plenty of experience in ‘change management’ and has been recruited to achieve the organizational changes that “should enable Scabal to better accommodate the wishes of its clients and its business partners”, according to the group.

 

The reorganization of the management team means that former CEO Gregor Thissen will get a “newly created function”: he will become executive chairman, focusing on long-term strategic issues, new market development and brand image. His father, Peter Thissen, will become honorary chairman, advising Scabal creatively.
