Brosway Italia Hires Two U.S. VPs


Brosway Italia is beefing up its U.S. leadership team as it continues to target this market,  hiring two veterans of charm brand Alex and Ani.

Lisa Cosenza (pictured), the company’s new vice president of sales, began her jewelry career at Alex and Ani as retail assistant manager. She then moved into wholesale as an account executive and was eventually promoted to regional sales manager for a business-to-business department that handled over $100 million in sales.

Susan Soares has joined Brosway as vice president of retail. Following stints at Ann Taylor and Barnes & Noble, Soares served as Alex and Ani’s vice president of retail from 2010 to 2015. She has also worked as an instructor at Rogers Williams University.

Soares “understands the detailed structure required to succeed [at retail], from the right staffing to days and hours of operation correlating to moving the right product mix”, said Giovanni Feroce, Alex and Ani’s first CEO, who now heads Brosway Italia’s U.S. expansion.

Brosway Italia is part of Bros Manifatture Group, a 40-year-old company based in Italy.
