Scm Group Australia is delighted to announce the appointment of Ezio Forcella as its new CEO for the Australian and New Zealand marketplace.

Ezio has extensive experience in managing multinational commercial operations and will take over from Lee Gabbett, who has led the firm for the past 4 years.

'While stepping away from a team of people that I am proud to be a part of is not an easy decision, it is important to recognise when it is the right time to 'pass the reins' Lee said 'As this company continues to grow, I am confident that Ezio will bring continued leadership to the team, and a focus on customer centric activities

Announcing Ezio's appointment, SCM Sales Director Pietro Gheller said 'Ezio is an exceptional manager, with a great track record. Chosen from a strong field of candidates, Ezio brings an impressive managerial knowledge base, along with a collaborative leadership style. His focus on customer care and service support is second to none'

Since its arrival in the Australian marketplace in 2016, Scm group's capability and supply has expanded significantly beyond the standard machine range, with large scale engineering projects & software solutions now a key component of the business. The Scm Group name continues to be synonymous with automated solutions, nesting machines and edgebanders. 

Reflecting on his appointment, Ezio said:  'I am honoured and very excited to have been selected to lead this fantastic team of people. We have a great culture, a great product, and the capacity to expand even further into the AU and NZ markets - my mission is to lead SCM to even greater things'.
