Golden Goose Deluxe, the fast-growing Italian brand of sneakers, aims to achieve annual sales of €500 million in the next three years compared with €186 million in 2018. More than 80 percent of the turnover comes from outside Italy. The company, which has been controlled since 2017 by a U.S. private equity firm, Carlyle, has posted annual growth of about 30 percent over the past five years. The figure comes from Silvio Campara, who was formerly sales director and became chief executive last September. Campara replaced Giorgio Presca, who is now the chief executive of Clarks (see the article in this issue). Last year, Golden Goose achieved an Ebitda margin of more than 30 percent. It plans to open 20 stores this year, mainly in the U.S. and Asia. At the end of 2018, it had 58 stores in operation.
