Zegna paid $500 million in August 2018 to acquire 85% of the company, considered as a move by the century-old Italian business to appeal to a younger clientele and enter new markets. As the company’s chief creative officer, Browne has maintained his 15% ownership position in the company. Rodrigo Bazan continues to lead the business as its CEO.
