Buccellati Group has named Randal “Randy” J. Soto to be its next CEO North America of Buccellati Inc., effective September 1. He will report to Gianluca Brozzetti, Buccellati Inc. executive VP and Group CEO.
Soto previously served in top management roles for Tiffany & Co., Market VP Southwest Region, Harry Winston, VP of US Retail, and David Yurman.
“We are confident that Randal’s extensive experience and client knowledge will greatly contribute to further develop Buccellati’s business in North America, which has been and remains one of the most important markets for our brand,” Brozzetti said in a statement.
Soto will replace the popular Alberto Milani, who resigned in early July, after 13 years of service with the high jewelry house.

Milani will remain as advisor to the Board of Buccellati Inc., managing special projects.
“We are thankful for Alberto’s vision and commitment to the development of Buccellati in the U.S.”, said Andrea Buccellati, president of Buccellati Group and chairman of Buccellati Inc.
