Allison has appointed Stefania Gambino as sales director for Europe. Gambino previously worked for Luxottica where she initially acted as international key account manager for Central and South America and then for Europe, handling also other corporate projects. In her last job at Luxottica, she was in charge of business development for the Chanel brand. Before joining Luxottica in 2008, Gambino worked for five years at Philip Morris. Vittorio Tabacchi, an executive who has nothing to do with the former owner and chief executive of Safilo, remains in charge of Allison's Italian sales while the export sales director Raffaele Mauri oversees distributors worldwide.
