Change at the top for Ucina: the Nautical Confederation has chosen Massimo Perotti, president of Sanlorenzo shipyards and former vice president of the association from 2012 to 2014, as Anton Francesco Albertoni’s successor. This was the result of the vote that took place at the Ucina Members’ Meeting held in Santa Margherita Ligure as part of Satec, the annual convention of member companies of the Boating Industry Confederation.
WHO PEROTTI IS.
Perotti, 53, takes over from Anton Francesco Albertoni, who reached the natural end of his term after eight years at the helm of the association, from 2006 to 2014. A graduate in Economics from the University of Turin – Faculty of Economics and Business, Perotti served as General Manager of Azimut in 1993 and as CEO of Azimut from 1996 to 2004. In 2005, Perotti acquired the Sanlorenzo shipyards, taking the company to the forefront of international shipbuilding in just a few years.
THE FIRST WORDS OF THE NEW PRESIDENT
“At a time that is certainly not easy for the Italian boating industry,” these are the first words of the newly appointed president of Ucina, “it is essential that companies in the sector feel firsthand the importance of working as a system. In this context, the Association will increasingly have to know how to exercise an accompanying role on the road to recovery, and to do so it will have to focus on precise activities such as, among others, supporting companies in the path to internationalization through Ucina’s new service company the dialogue with the banking and leasing system to facilitate access to credit, the winning back the customer through innovative products and services, the continuation of institutional activities aimed at promoting the demands of the industry in terms of thesimplification and de-bureaucratization, the development of the Genoa International Boat Show into a permanent show through the new company I Saloni Nautici S.p.a.
