Changes at the top of ACIMAC (1)

October 2020

ACIMAC, the Italian ceramic machinery and equipment manufacturers’ association, has a new Chairman. Paolo Mongardi, Chairman of Sacmi, has been elected to lead the association for a two-year period between 2020-2022.

The three vice chairmen have also been elected: Paolo Lamberti (Chairman of Tecnografica), in charge of innovation; Luca Bazzani (CEO of System Ceramics), tasked with promotional and exhibition activities; and Bruno Bettelli (Chairman and CEO of I-TECH), responsible for association marketing.

While maintaining its four-year duration, the new aspect of this chairmanship is the fact that it will be divided into two equal periods, with Paolo Lamberti taking over from Paolo Mongardi in two years’ time.  

As Mongardi explained in his first speech as Chairman, it is a formula that aims to ensure inclusivity and representativeness.  “The fact that the Members’ Meeting has voted unanimously for the first time reflects the association’s unity in terms of its operations and vision,” said Mongardi. “I am taking over a big responsibility from Paolo Sassi at an economically challenging time for companies in the sector. I will fulfil my duties with enthusiasm and dedication in the knowledge that I will have the chance to work with an outstanding organisation.”

The newly elected Chairman also set out some of the objectives of his new programme.  These include creating new services for members, further expanding the membership base, and ensuring greater involvement of companies in the association’s initiatives.
