Sanlorenzo Spa appoint new Group President


The Italian shipyard Sanlorenzo Spa has recently appointed a new Group President / General Manager, Ferruccio Rossi.

Commenting on his new role with the shipyard, Rossi stated, "I am very glad to join the Sanlorenzo shipyard, a growing company with a prestigious tradition and a very important potential. I have a great respect for the achievements that Mr. Perotti's team reached in the last decade, despite the difficult economy that affected the yachting industry. We both share the same vision in terms of innovation and tradition; I am happy to bring my personal professional contribution for the consolidation and for the further development plans of Sanlorenzo.”

Following his degree in Business Administration at Bocconi University in Milan, Rossi worked in investment banking and private equity in firms such as JP Morgan and Permira Funds. From 2001 to 2005 he entered the board of directors of Ferretti and Grandi Navi Veloci Spa and in mid 2005 he was appointed as Managing Director / CEO of Riva Spa. Since then and for the following nine years he has covered increasingly critical positions within Ferretti Group, reaching in mid 2012 the role of Group CEO.
