As the heir to a footwear empire, it’s no surprise that Alexandre Birman is famous in his own right.

His father Anderson Birman co-founded Arezzo in 1972. It quickly grew to become one of the most famous brands in Brazil.

At the humble age of 19, Alexandre Birman followed in his father’s footsteps and launched his first brand, Schutz.

The Success of Arezzo & Co

The brand became a success in its own right, quickly turning a $3 million investment into annual revenue of $64 million.

After the success of his own brand, Alexandre Birman was invited by his father to bring the Schutz brand into the Arezzo & Co family.

Alexandre took on a senior leadership role, growing Arezzo & Co to a position where it now dominates the Brazilian footwear market.
