By Luke Barras-hill |

Alessio Crivelli has held various roles with Luxottica Group since 2014.

Global eyewear giant EssilorLuxottica has appointed Alessio Crivelli as its new Global Travel Retail Director.

He succeeds Enrico Destro, who departs the group to pursue new career opportunities.

According to his LinkedIn profile, Destro has been working as Chief Commercial Officer for Alessi since April.

Crivelli has been with Luxottica since 2014, beginning as a Trade Marketing Director in Italy before taking on the role of Global Wholesale Trade Marketing Director and then Global In Store Communication Director for Wholesale and Retail.

Luxottica says that since joining the company, he has ‘greatly contributed to increasing the visibility of Luxottica brands in the wholesale and retail channels’.

The company says his achievements include ‘driving the creation of the company’s digital screens network as well as creating a comprehensive in-store toolkit to support the launch of Ray-Ban Stories, the first generation of smart glasses launched in collaboration with Meta.’

Crivelli commented: “I am very excited to lead EssilorLuxottica in this dynamic channel, during such a pivotal period where we are driving so many fresh innovations in eyewear – from new subcategories to cutting-edge digital technologies to elevate the consumer experience.

“I’m looking forward to working closely with our talented team and valued retail partners to seize every opportunity to restore renewed growth for the category.”
