Changes at the top of ACIMAC

August 2020

ACIMAC - the Italian ceramic machinery and equipment manufacturers’ association - has a new Chairman.  On 8th July, the AGM unanimously elected Paolo Mongardi, Chairman of Sacmi, to lead the association for the two-year period 2020-2022.  Born in 1964, Mongardi began working for Sacmi in 1985 as a project designer.  He joined the cooperative’s Board of Directors in 2001 and took over as chairman in 2013.

The three vice chairmen were also elected during the meeting: 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.  This decision, approved by the association’s Board of Directors, reaffirms the association’s desire to bring together and protect the interests of all categories of companies represented by ACIMAC in terms of both size (large and small companies) and types of business (suppliers of individual machines, complete plants and services).

“I am taking over a big responsibility from Paolo Sassi at an economically challenging time for companies in the sector,” stated Mongardi.  “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 his key objectives including creating new services for members, further expanding the membership base, and ensuring greater involvement of companies in the association’s initiatives.
