In her new role within the Pomellato Group, which comprises the Italian luxury jewellery brands Pomellato and Dodo, Belli will report to Albert Bensoussan, chief executive officer of Kering ‘Luxury – Watches & Jewellery’ division.

Albert Bensoussan, CEO of Kering ‘Luxury – Watches & Jewellery’ division, comments: “I am pleased to have Sabina Belli taking the role of CEO of the Pomellato group. Since she joined, she has demonstrated a deep knowledge of the brands and their organisations.

Bensoussan adds: “I would also like to thank Andrea Morante for the role he has played in the growth of the Pomellato group, and for his dedication to a harmonious transition over the past months, paving the way for the brands’ successful future.”
