Aldo Faccenda of Bottero (pictured) was elected the new Gimav President at its recent Ordinary General Meeting.

He will take over from Cinzia Schiatti. Michele Gusti of OCMI-OTG, who was confirmed as President of the Hollow Glass Section and Dino Zandonella Necca of ADI, who was confirmed President of the Accessories Section, were called to assist President Faccenda.

Along with the new President, the Board of Directors was elected for a new term and is now composed of Barbara Antonini (Antonini), Federica Bovone (Elettromeccanica Bovone), Nicola Lattuada (Adelio Lattuada), Angelo Lovati (Lovati F.lli), Nancy Mammaro (Mappi International), Barbara Mazza (Cugher Glass), Michela Pezza (Fratelli Pezza) and Matteo Rolla (Neptun).

“There was a very active participation in the meeting, which led to the election of a Board of Directors that is widely representative of all the main areas of the sector: flat glass, hollow glass and accessories,” stated Aldo Faccenda, who is also HR Director at Bottero.

“I am certain that this can be an excellent starting point. Our aim is to continue with the development process that we started a few months ago, in terms of the association’s visibility and activities.

"GIMAV must continue to grow, by welcoming all of Italy’s star players in this sector, to strengthen its weight on the domestic and international markets and to be universally recognised as a global player for all the glass trade worldwide.”
