Macron operates in three main business areas:

History edit

Persepolis' first kit in 2014-15

Macron was founded in 1971 as a distributor of American sportswear brands in Italy.[1] A major expansion of the organization took place in 1994, coincident with relocation and consolidation to Crespellano.[1]

Macron began providing teamwear to professional football in 2001, its first contract being with Bologna.[1] Expansion beyond the domestic Italian market began in 2005.[1]

In 2014, Macron secured a four-year agreement with Bolton Wanderers for naming rights to their home stadium, resulting in renaming in July 2014 to Macron Stadium.[2] Macron supplanted Reebok as the stadium namesake, and will provide the club's kit.[2]

Corporate governance edit

As of 2014, Macron's chief executive officer (CEO) was Gianluca Pavanello.[3] and the company's president was Francesco Bromioli.[4]

Sponsorships and customers edit

Macron sponsors or makes a variety of organizations, teams and, events. In many cases, the wording of published accounts does not make a clear demarcation between a case where a team has purchased kit (aka uniforms or strip) versus those whose kit has been provided as a matter of sponsorship. The following is a partial list of these sponsorship/customer relationships.[citation needed]
