Tony Coleiro has been appointed director of Milan-based fashion broker La Quinta Srl.

Mr Coleiro has been a managing partner with the group for five years.

La Quinta was established in 1980 as the first company acting as a fashion broker, fostering alliances between large, well-known fashion houses and smaller suppliers.

La Quinta branched out into other complementary services and developed divisions each with a specific task, enabling the company to offer a complete service-consulting programme.

Today, La Quinta comprises an international network that in­cludes a number of branches and associate offices throughout the major markets of the world.

La Quinta is present internationally either with own offices, freelance or representative offices, which often cover several surrounding countries and increase the effectiveness of the network itself.

Mr Coleiro will be responsible for the group’s international network which includes branch offices in Milan and Florence, Paris, Miami, Thailand, Malay­sia and Singapore.

A Malta office oversees the group’s business in Albania, Algeria, Gibraltar, Greece, Lebanon, Tunisia, Morocco, Cyprus, Libya, Monaco, Egypt, Portugal and Israel.

La Quinta Srl also has representative offices in Hong Kong, Tokyo, Shenzen and Shanghai, Seoul, Istanbul, New Delhi, and freelance offices in the UK, Russia, Vietnam, Dubai, Spain and New York.
