Vittorio and Giuseppe Marangoni
Vittorio Marangoni has taken over as president of Marangoni SpA. His appointment to the position was confirmed at a meeting of the retreading and tyre machinery specialist’s Board of Directors late last month. The Board also named Giuseppe Marangoni the company’s new vice-president, while company founder Mario Marangoni received the title of honorary president as a mark of respect for his more than 60 years of commitment in leading the Marangoni Group.
According to the Italian firm, the appointments of Vittorio and Giuseppe Marangoni are a “significant development in the generational transition of the Group” and the result of a process that began in 2011. “The appointments reflect the renewed commitment of the owners to guiding the Group through an important period of its history, with the aim of fine-tuning the strategic repositioning underway in order to enable the company to successfully face the new challenges resulting from the globalisation of the tyre industry,” explained Marangoni SpA in a statement.
Vittorio Marangoni holds a degree in Management Engineering from the Politecnico di Milano. He has taken part in the governance of the Marangoni Group for a number of years, initially as a member of an internal committee and since 2015 as member of the Board of Directors responsible for extraordinary transactions. In addition to his new role, Vittorio Marangoni is managing director of the financial holding, Marangoni Holding S.p.A.
Giuseppe Marangoni holds a BS and MBA, and joined the group in 2000. Following a period at company headquarters he transferred to Marangoni Tread North America, Inc., where he worked as operation manager and controller. In 2008, he returned to Italy and took on the position of supply chain manager and corporate purchasing director of raw materials for all the group’s production units.
The above appointments follow the addition of Salvatore Torrisi to the company’s Board of Directors. The Board now consists of Mario Marangoni, Vittorio Marangoni, Giuseppe Marangoni, Massimo De Alessandri (managing director), Giovanni Marangoni, Giorgio Marangoni and Salvatore Torrisi.
