At Adidas, Brunazzo operated from the German headquarters of the sports brand. He worked there as a general manager of concept to consumer sports BUs and Heartbeat Sports.
Notably, the European zone was once a key market for the fashion brand, but it has struggle to maintain pace in the zone in the recent time.
In the year 2018, fashion brand Bottega Veneta witnessed a 3 percent drop in its revenue to 1.11 billion Euros.
Markedly, 82 percent of the total revenue came from its company-owned stores.
The sales in Western Europe dropped by 12 percent against 2017.
The owner of Bottega Veneta, Kering has also mentioned that the brand had suffered a plunge in tourist spending drastically.
