文/新浪财经意见领袖(微信公众号kopleader)机构专栏 中欧视角 作者 梁能   古驰家族故事的开头与其他奢侈品牌的发轫有着很多的相同之处。1899年,17岁的意大利少年古驰奥•古驰(Guccio Gucci)辗转来到繁华的大都市英国伦敦,成为了奢华的索威酒店厨房里一名不起眼的帮工。那些印有客人名字缩写字母的豪华行李箱和帽子盒都令古驰奥心向往之,他意识到商品的精细品质和高昂价格,是彰显身份、财富与成就的重要标志。   三年后,攒到第一桶金的古驰奥回到意大利和心上人阿依达结婚,很快,他们有了第一个女儿;随后,三个儿子——奥尔多、瓦斯科和鲁道夫相继出生。 一战时期,对伦敦繁华念念不忘的古驰奥加盟了一家优质皮具制作公司,他从学徒做起,全面掌握了皮具制作技术及其上下游业务的每个环节。1922年战乱结束后,古驰奥开始创业。   他了解富人对品质生活追求,确立了“小规模、成就大事业”的经营方针;在选人方面,高精确严挑选,只聘请手艺最好的工匠;内容上,制作各式各样的皮具,大到行李箱和手提包,小到皮带、钥匙链等一应俱全,同时古驰奥将象征精英阶层的马术元素引入品牌,产品的品质和服务都达到了同时代最高水准,无数豪门贵族和明星大腕争相购买, 到20世纪70年代,古驰品牌已经享誉全球。   本是同根生 相煎何太急   由于性格内向使然和工作繁忙,古驰奥情感上与子女始终比较疏远,他鼓励儿子们互相竞争。同时,虽然每个儿子对公司的贡献都不相同,古驰奥处于一种简单的公平理念,坚持每一个男性后裔都应该拥有相同的公司股份,造成三兄弟之间很深的裂痕。 长子奥尔多虽然读书不多,但最有做生意的头脑。野心勃勃的他,最早参与公司经营,在品牌和营销方面贡献突出,象征着财富与特权的古驰经典“GG”商标和经典的竹节包都出自他手。   次子瓦斯科性格自由散漫,没有经商意识;三子鲁道夫早年进入影坛,二战结束后才涉足家族生意,但是缺乏公司治理概念的父亲分给他们与大哥同等的股份。家族的博爱、平等原则与企业的理性、绩效原则发生直接冲突,三兄弟之间互不服气,暗中较量。 继续阅读
