Gori replaces Gianni Mion, who held the position for two years and is now stepping down. Gori was previously chief executive of Pirelli Tyres and is currently a non-executive director for Italian natural gas company Snam, publishing firm Messaggerie Italiane and Apollo Tyres.

In 2015 Benetton’s retail turnover fell 1.2% to €1.5bn (£1.2bn) and the firm’s retail business made a net loss of €46m (£36m).
