Patrizio Bertelli

Executive Director at Prada Group


Patrizio Bertelli is Executive Director of the Company. He was first appointed to the Board in 2003 and held the role of Co-Chief Executive Officer, along his wife Miuccia Prada, until 26th January 2023.

His partnership with Miuccia Prada began at the end of the ‘70s. His pioneering approach of controlling the entire supply chain, his focus on quality and detail, combined with the ability to reinterpret Prada’s DNA for a contemporary audience, were instrumental in the brand’s ascent to become one of the world leaders in luxury.

To his entrepreneurial activity, he combines cultural and sporting interests that he shares with Miuccia Prada. Fondazione Prada was founded in 1993 with the aim of organising and sponsoring contemporary art exhibitions and other cultural activities. In 1997, he created the “Prada Challenge for the America’s Cup 2000” team. In 2021, Prada became the title sponsor of the 36th America’s Cup.

Mr. Bertelli received an honorary degree in Business Economics from the University of Florence in 2000, the Master honoris causa in Business Administration from the CUOA Business School in 2017 and the “University Seal” from the University of Bologna in 2021.

In 2006, Time Magazine cited him together with Miuccia Prada among the 100 most influential couples in the world and in 2012 he became the first Italian in history to be inducted into the America’s Cup Hall of Fame.
