I believed in the future of Leopard though the current recession, the crisis of the nautical industry and the difficult position of the brand due to the separation from the Rodriguez Group. It’s two years now and I can look back with satisfaction: the order book is growing, the team is solid and the new organization will give the final surge of adrenaline”.
