After less than two years in the job, Dino Maggioni has chosen to step down as chief executive officer of Marangoni S.p.A. and also leave all other positions he held within the group. According to a statement issued by the company, Maggioni’s departure follows a review of the “strategical directions that were assigned to Mr Dino Maggioni in the autumn of 2016.”
The performance of Marangoni retreading products is expected to benefit from a new strategic collaboration between Marangoni and Directa Plus plc, a leading producer and supplier of graphene-based products for use in consumer and industrial markets. Under the terms of the agreement, both Marangoni and Directa plus will work together to develop a bespoke version of the Directa’s Graphene Plus (G+) for use in Marangoni truck and bus tyre retreading compounds.
A fair few changes have taken place within the Marangoni Group’s management team this month. The company reports it has “seen a high turnover in management positions” since the beginning of February, changes that represent a “further step in the generational change that is taking place within the Group.
Outgoing chief executive officer Massimo De Alessandri will remain involved with the Marangoni Group for at least “the next few months,” the Italian retreading company confirmed to Tyres & Accessories. His continued engagement covers a “phase of the organisational transition,” including the appointment of new chief executive officer Dino Maggioni.
Dino Maggioni has been named the new chief executive officer of the Marangoni Group. He succeeds Massimo De Alessandri in this role and was appointed by the company’s board after approval was granted at a shareholder meeting. During the meeting, the company’s statutory charter was also modified to increase the number of directors to eight board members.
