Stephen Marsan Wiki – Stephen Marsan Biography

CEO Stephen Marsan created a toxic workplace where only slim, pretty, white girls were allowed to work in his stores, according to the Insider report. Former Senior Vice President Luca Rotondo said Marsan told him to only hire girls who fit his specifications. “If she was black if she was fat … she didn’t want them in the store,” Rotondo told Insider. The insider also reported that several women were fired because of their physical appearance and race.

Brandy Melville did not respond to a request for comment from The Post. Marsan and other top executives did not respond to Insider requests for comment, according to the publication. The report said Marsan was so involved in all areas of the business that he even asked for full-body photographs of girls, some as young as 14, before giving the store managers the green light to hire them. And once the girls started working at Brandy Melville, they were expected to continue sending full-length photographs to Marsan whenever they were in the store. Marsan claimed it was because he wanted to keep an eye on fashion trends.

And once the girls started working at Brandy Melville, they were expected to continue sending full-length photographs to Marsan whenever they were in the store. Marsan claimed it was because he wanted to keep an eye on fashion trends.

Despite the supposedly toxic culture, several female employees said they felt it was a status symbol to work at such an exciting brand, according to the Insider report. And for the girls favored by management, known as “special snowflakes,” they were treated with boyish gloves. These girls were given access to the company’s Soho loft, flew on trips to Hawaii and Italy, and were taken shopping.

But those benefits led to inappropriate behavior, according to the report. The favored female employees were expected to try on new clothes in front of male management and strip in front of them, according to the report. A 21-year-old manager said she was sexually assaulted in the company’s Soho loft by a man who ran several Brandy Melville stores, according to Insider.

Marsan launched the brand in Italy in the 1990s before bringing it to the US in 2009.

As the company continued its ascent, Marsan became more controlling, according to the report. Insider wrote that in 2013, he ordered staff at various stores to remove all items from the floor except for the three smallest sizes. Thereafter, Brandy Melville took the “one size fits all” approach of offering only small sizes.

Meanwhile, the Insider report also said that Marsan texted a group text called “Brandy Melville gags” that were racist, misogynistic and anti-Semitic. In the group chat, which included roughly 30 of Marsan’s friends and co-workers, according to the report, Marsan made at least 24 references to Adolf Hitler. He sent several photos and jokes about Hitler. An edited photo of the Nazi leader was titled “Nobel Prize for BBQ,” the report said.

Marsan also sent countless racist messages, according to the Insider report. At one point, according to the report, he posted a photo from the Happy Days show with the caption, “There were no black people on this show, that’s why it was called ‘Happy Days.’ The group also exchanged multiple pornographic images, according to the report.

Just hours after the explosive story, Pacsun, the only Brandy Melville wholesaler in the United States, said they were “deeply concerned” by the report and were reassessing their relationship with the brand, according to Insider. The company has a presence in 15 countries. While it explored various financing deals, including an initial public offering, Brandy Melville remains private. It’s unclear what the company’s revenue is, but former executives say it’s over $ 250 million a year, Insider said.

The manager who told Insider that she was se**xually assaulted said he believes it is best to close the store, according to the outlet. “They would be doing everyone a favor if they closed this business,” he said.
