Stefano Martinetto is the controlling shareholder and CEO of Tomorrow London Holdings Ltd, a group of companies investing in creative industries as a unique multibrand, multiservice business model that includes showrooms and a logistical centre, as well as consulting, marketing and digital arms.
In January 2016, it was announced that Three Hills Capital Partners would invest $21 million in the business, providing funding for further international expansion. Later in 2016, Red Circle Investments (the family investment company of Diesel founder Renzo Rosso ), subsequently acquired a “high single digit” stake in the Holding.
In January this year, 470 MM, an Italian boutique consulting firm, joined the Tomorrow Holdings Group and was since rebranded as Tomorrow Consulting Ltd. Most recently in March 2017, a new Italian based JV, Todo Srl, was established in partnership with Doro Group, to develop Rebecca Minkoff production, distribution and retail.
The management team has aligned and curated a selection of international brands across menswear, womenswear, accessories, technology and jewellery including Marni, OAMC, Ambush, Ader Error, Facetasm, A Cold Wall, SJYP, Sue Comma Bonnie, Tibi and Markus Lupfer providing these brands with exposure, capital, business advice, and access to the world’s top stores.
Fourth generation in fashion, Martinetto started his career in the family agency which was then representing YSL, Valentino, Dior and Montana among others before starting his own venture by partnering with designers such as Walter Von Bereindonk, Dirk Bikkembers and Helmut Lang .
Between 1997 and 2010, he was at the forefront of the luxury denim and designer sneaker movement in the distribution of brands such as Evisu, Superfine, Puma Mihara, Neil Barret and Mc Queen whilst becoming Raf Simons ’ distribution partner between 2005-2010.
In 2011, Martinetto’s vision lead to the merger between his Italian operation and Saturday Group, creating Tomorrow London Ltd, which he and his business partner Giancarlo Simiri then took over in November 2015 via MBO.
