The founder and chief executive officer of Executive S.A.S., Alexander Zielcke is a leader in pushing Colombia’s international fashion retail distribution network. Having catered to Colombia’s international designer fashion market for 20 years with his multi-brand boutique Le Collezioni, today Zielcke also operates a network of free-standing boutiques and concessions for the likes of Ermenegildo Zegna, Salvatore Ferragamo and Michael Kors . He is now expanding his portfolio beyond Bogotá into Colombia’s secondary urban markets of MedellÍn, Barranquilla and Cartagena. 

Founded in 1995, Executive S.A.S. operates franchised monobrand stores, shop-in-shops and concessions for many global luxury brands, including Ermenegildo Zegna, Salvatore Ferragamo, Hackett and Michael Kors. The group is also behind the landmark Colombian multi-brand boutique Le Collezioni, which sells brands such as Valentino, Corneliani, Etro Dsquared2, Just Cavalli, Pinko, Red Valentino, Harmont & Blaine, Santoni, Church's and others. 

Today, Zielcke is driving the portfolio of designers across new malls and shopping districts beyond Bogota, Barranquilla and Cartagena with real estate projects to expand operations into other cities like Cali and Medellin, also with the start of an ecommerce channel. The places will have spaces for the urban and streetwear to make the generational change based on today's fashion trends.
