Chairman and Chief Executive Officer

Remo Ruffini is the Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Moncler S.p.A.

Born in Como, Italy, he has always had a great appreciation for creativity and sophisticated design, something he has developed as a distinctive trait across his entire career.

In 2003, Ruffini took over the helm of Moncler, the legendary brand specialized in down jackets, undertaking a global brand reset that, while always remaining faithful to its roots and heritage, elevated it to a luxury positioning.

With his love for challenges and a unique talent for brand vision, Ruffini soon left his hallmark on the brand with an integrated strategy leveraging on a multifaceted, constantly evolving, creative sensitivity.

The company was floated on the Milan stock exchange in December 2013.

In  2018, Ruffini’s vision and ability to disrupt the traditional codes of the industry, led to the launch of Moncler Genius. Pioneering collaborations with different creative minds, Moncler Genius redefined the brand’s relevance in the digital era, introducing constant dialogue and engagement with its community through monthly editorial projects and collection launches.

In 2022, Moncler turned 70, creating a unique opportunity for the brand to celebrate in its distinctive way through a succession of worldwide activations for 70 days that included a takeover of the iconic Piazza Duomo in Milan in front of a live audience of 18,000 brand lovers and a partnership with Frieze London.

In 2023 Moncler Genius evolved into a platform for co-creation, teaming up with partners from multiple industries spanning art, design, entertainment, music, sport and culture and bringing a new energy to the brand and a new meaning to the world of luxury.

Today, Moncler is recognized a reference not just for the world of luxury, but also as one of the most iconic and inspirational brands around the globe.

In his pursuit of bringing luxury and fashion beyond the established codes, in December 2020, Moncler announced the acquisition of Stone Island, and the creation of the Moncler Group.
