In the newly created role, Rothmann is also tasked with contributing to the elevation of the brand, with a broader involvement working with the Milan headquarters.

“As an accomplished executive with a proven history in domestic and international management, Dan brings his exceptional experience at a very important moment for our company,” said Fabrizio Cardinali, CEO of Etro. “I had the pleasure of working with him in the past, and I am pleased to welcome him to our team as a key player who will surely contribute to strengthening our vision in such a strategic market for the brand’s future growth.”

Rothmann joins Etro from Dolce & Gabbana, where he served as CEO North America for five years. Prior to that he was president and CEO of Chloé Americas.

“I am thrilled to be part of Etro’s beautiful next chapter,” said Rothmann. “Etro is a brand steeped in a unique heritage and a beautiful legacy that can be built upon. There is such potential to make a truly unique lifestyle brand — all the ingredients are there and together with [creative director] Marco [De Vincenzo] and Fabrizio we will do it.”

Private equity giant L Catterton acquired a majority stake in Etro in July 2021. In that same year, the luxury brand appointed Fabrizio Cardinali as chief executive officer.
