Paolo Casani is the new CEO of the Azimut Yachts Division of the Azimut-Benetti Group.Casani began his career with the company in 2008 after twenty-five years of experience in the fashion and luxury goods sector (Armani, Valentino, Calvin Klein and Ferragamo), and has successfully directed the Yachtique Division dedicated to strategic services, a position he will maintain ad interim while taking on his new role.
Paolo Casani will take over many of the activities carried out up to now by Gianni Cucco, a manager with ten years' experience at the top of the Company, recently called back by the Chairman Paolo Vitelli to temporarily direct Azimut Yachts and help to select his successor among the company's internal resources. Having successfully completed this mission, Gianni Cucco will remain with the Company to support the Azimut division and will continue to carry out some Corporate activities.
At the same time the Group, in line with its production and commercial philosophy, has decided to split its activities into two main areas: boats up to 30 metres, headed by Paolo Casani, including Atlantis division headed by Luca Sburlati, and boats over 30 metres, which will be directed by Vincenzo Poerio, a historic company manager who has worked for eighteen years as CEO of Benetti, and will from now on also be responsible for the Grande Collection models branded Azimut Yachts.
