Diesel CEO Chair to be filled

Choosing a CEO is serious stuff. It takes skill, responsibility and a lot of knowledge. The Diesel CEO’s chair is empty at the moment. Alessandro Bogliolo served as CEO for the Italian fashion brand from 2013 until July 2017 when he left to work with Tiffany. Until the official successor takes on the role, the company is searching for someone to temporarily occupy it: a Chair Executive Officer. With such a short amount of time available, there’s only one skill that anyone interested in the role must possess: to be ridiculously good at sitting in a chair. That’s why Renzo Rosso, Diesel’s founder, is asking people to showcase their best sitting technique on the brand’s Facebook page. Starting from 5th October, people will be able to showcase their sitting skills for 4 days by commenting with photos or videos on the post that launches the initiative. The new Chair Executive Officer will then fly to Italy, straight to Diesel headquarters, where he or she will become a brand ambassador, sitting on the brand’s most important chair for an entire week: the Diesel CEO Chair.
