The general assembly of Acimall, the association of Italian manufacturers of furniture and wood technology, approved the appointment of Luigi De Vito (Scm Group, Rimini) to President for the 2020-2023 period, together with Marianna Daschini (Greda, Mariano Comense) taking the role of Vice President.
The assembly – meeting yesterday, July 14 – accepted the nominations by the managing board and approved the financial statement of one of the most difficult years for Acimall and the entire world economy.
De Vito – married, with three children – is currently wood Division Director at Scm, in charge for production, product development, sales and after-sales service. With a business management degree from the Luiss University in Rome, he has developed solid managing experience abroad, dealing with European loans for startups, and then at Unilever. Since 2008, he has been working in the wood technology industry, covering roles with increasing responsibilities, and he joined Scm Group in 2012.
De Vito took the opportunity to greet many business owners attending the video conference, and first of all he thanked the outgoing president Lorenzo Primultini, “…who has been able to guide the association through one of the most difficult times in history, while keeping a focus on the values that a business association must preserve”. The new Acimall president then introduced Vice President Marianna Daschini, stressing the value of a young female manager in a high-profile role.
Then, he mentioned the key topics of his term: promoting open dialog among the member companies and with other associations; focusing resources on strategic projects (credit access, business development, supply chain initiatives); supporting and developing the brands of member companies, "...creating a favorable environment to exchange excellent models of market strategy, sales and technology trends."
