Francesca Spinetta

After starting her career in a consulting company as business analyst and editor, Francesca Spinetta was offered the opportunity to join Intima Media Group to become, few years later, the co-owner of the Milano based company. Her mission was to develop the company internationally and so she made Intima the #1 magazine in France. Then she launched Intima Asia, The Best of Intima in North America, Intimoda for Russia and the CIS and, last year The Best of Swim, a swim only magazine targeting the vast American swim market. Ms. Spinetta also successfully launched two major retail Awards, first in the US then in France and participates, as a professional speaker, to several business conferences worldwide. In 2016 she was one of the honourees of the Femmy Awards, the most prestigious industry awards in the USA.
