Outside Sales Manager

More than a century old, Fortuny remains the highly esteemed Venetian textile company founded by noted artist, inventor, textile, and fashion designer, Mariano Fortuny. Under the management of the Riad family for nearly 30 years, Fortuny continues to be infused with the spirit of its founder. Fortuny’s textiles are still produced on the island of Giudecca in Venice, in the same factory, on the same machines, using the same secret process and techniques handed down from generation to generation for a century. Just as Mariano Fortuny used his love of innovation and respect for tradition to inspire his creativity, today Fortuny continues to be a pioneer in the world of design and technology.
