Jimmy Baldini becomes ANCI Vice President

Jimmy Baldinini, owner of Baldinini, in July became vice president of the Italian Shoe Manufacturers Association (ANCI). ANCI is the organizer of the international exhibition of shoes MICAM, which is held twice a year in Milan, and is promoting Italian shoes at exhibitions in Beijing, Moscow, New York.

As Jimmy Bapdinini says, “I have always invested in a brand, even when there were very few of them, because 50% of success depends on the brand. I have been in Russia for over 20 years. Secret of success? Go to a country where there is money and where fashion is loved. I was offered to become president of ANCI, but I refused. However, I am concerned about promoting the Made in Italy brand in the world, so I agreed to the post of Vice President. "

Baldinini now has 250 employees and about 200 points of sale, 100 of which are located in Russia. The company has been operating in Russia for 27 years, and two-thirds of its exports go to our country. This year, according to the company's forecasts, sales in Russia should reach more than 100 million euros, exceeding the volume of sales in 2010.

Alberto Zambianchi, President of the Chamber of Commerce of the Forlì-Cesena region, stressed that the Baldinini company did not suffer from the crisis like the others. In the first quarter of 2011, the region's shoe factories grew by 13,7%, while Baldinini's - by 25%.

We also note that for the first time this year Baldinini will take part in the presentation of EURO SHOES PREMIERE COLLECTION, which will be held on August 24-27 at the Sokolniki expocenter: Moscow, Sokolniki Val, 1 Pavilion 4.
