History and development

The Group today

The Ermenegildo Zegna Group today is one of Italy’s most famous family driven enterprises. Over the last century the business gene and entrepreneurial spirit has been passed down through the generations, ensuring that the name Zegna remains synonymous with pioneers of business. Growth has been possible through shrewd diversification of the offering, which now ranges from clothing to accessories, and strategies which have enabled the Ermenegildo Zegna brand to grow successfully throughout the world.

There is far more to Zegna’s success than this though: a strong and consolidated business culture that allows young talents to emerge in the company-wide quest for quality, and a constant focus on customers and people.

Zegna Group’s philosophy is based on three principles:
- long-term objectives
- family ownership to ensure continuity
- a sound ethical commitment enshrined in a rigorous corporate governance system

Today the company is led by Gildo as CEO and Paolo is Chairman.


"A great family makes a great company, a great company makes a great family."
