Davide Colli appointed COO of Ceramiche Piemme

October 2018

At Cersaie, Davide Colli was unveiled as the new Chief Operating Officer of Ceramiche Piemme.  He joined the Fiorano Modenese-based company in July from the Concorde Group.  Born in Reggio Emilia in 1972, Colli holds a degree in business administration, a master's degree in Foreign Trade and International Marketing, and his career path shows a true vocation for sales and international markets.  In his previous role as European Key Account Executive, he developed brand awareness and contributed to the growth of sales throughout Europe and in key markets such as Eastern Europe and the Middle East.

"I accepted this new challenge at Ceramiche Piemme with great enthusiasm and I would like to thank President Carla Vacchi who, together with her sons Sergio and Giovanni, offered me this opportunity," says Colli. "Since 2015, the company has shown the entire ceramic industry that it knows how to implement a serious recovery plan, resuming a path of important growth both in terms of image and company solidity."

Since 2016, the company has increased its production by 500,000 sq. metres per annum, to reach the current annual capacity of 7.7 million sq. metres, following significant investment in research and digital printing technology.

"The path of growth we have undertaken makes us very proud and confident in the future," notes Carla Vacchi, President. "Davide Colli will be able to make an important contribution, especially to commercial and marketing strategies to implement brand sales and achieve the objectives we set ourselves three years ago.”

The company has two brands, Ceramiche Piemme - dedicated to the world of design and made for a residential and commercial market - and Valentino by Ceramiche Piemme.  The latter is a refined and stylish high-end brand that should help open up new distribution channels in addition to the traditional sales network.
