Tower crane maker Raimondi Cranes SpA, has announced the appointment of Diego Borgna as its acting chief executive officer in place of Domenico Ciano, the CEO who has been approved for a one-year sabbatical.
Effective immediately, Borgna has assumed his new role and taken over all the responsibilities and authority that the position entails, said a statement from the Italian tower crane specialist, which described Borgna as a crane industry veteran with more than 20 years of “hands-on experience in the global heavy lifting machinery sector”. He initially joined Raimondi as deputy managing director in charge of operations.
Raimondi added that as part of the handover process, and to facilitate a smooth and timely transition in senior leadership, Ciano and Borgna have been working closely over the past few months, alongside commercial director Cristian Badin.
“Of utmost importance to Raimondi is the valued relationship the company has with our official agent roster, in tandem with ensuring satisfaction for our clients from all over the world. My work since March has overlapped a great deal with the Commercial team as we planned our expansion and next steps. This interdepartmental collaboration will serve the company well taken in context together with my appointment as Acting CEO,” said Borgna discussing the importance of the Commercial Department.
The statement further added that Raimondi’s Board of Directors has reiterated their strong support of Ciano’s decision to embark on the one-year sabbatical, lauding his commitment to his personal goals of health and wellness.
“I am now completely disengaged from the company’s day-to-day operations, as well as high level decision-making effective immediately. I express my thanks to the Board of Directors for their understanding and support during this time. I extend my best wishes to Eng. Borgna for the coming 12 months, and I hope to see Raimondi continue to go from strength to strength under his tenure,” said Ciano.
