RINA appoints new CEO of consulting business
Alberto Cavaggioni to succeed Roberto Carpaneto who remains as President
Genoa – The Board of Directors of RINA Consulting, Italy’s premier engineering consultancy and part of the multinational group RINA, yesterday appointed Alberto Cavaggioni as the CEO of the company. Cavaggioni, who boasts twenty years of experience in senior international managerial positions, succeeds Roberto Carpaneto, at the helm of RINA Consulting since 2007, who will now hold the position of President.
Cavaggioni graduated in Business & Administration from the Luigi Bocconi University of Milan, where he also obtained an Executive Master in Marketing & Sales. After holding positions of increasing responsibility – with a passion for sales and marketing – both in the industrial sectors (Saint Gobain and Hilti) and in the automotive sector (he was EMEA manager of the Alfa Romeo and Maserati brands for Europe and China), he recently held the position of Vice President Sales & Service for North America at the Palfinger Group, a multinational active in industrial lifting systems.
Alberto Cavaggioni, CEO of RINA Consulting, said: “It is really exciting for me to move from the world of industry to that of services, especially to enter a company like RINA Consulting which is very active on issues of social interest such as energy, industry, mobility and infrastructure. I thank Ugo Salerno and Roberto Carpaneto for their trust and the 3,000 people – whose great skills and passion I have already appreciated – and with whom I will work side by side to further grow the company, especially in foreign markets”.
“Alberto’s experience and knowledge will allow us to continue down the path that led RINA Consulting to be recognized as Italy’s top engineering consultancy in 2021 and one of the most important in the international market. We want to continue to provide our expertise to public and private stakeholders to help realise the most important projects both in Italy and globally” added Roberto Carpaneto, President of RINA Consulting.
