New CEO for Nautor’s Swan
Published on September 7th, 2018
Giovanni Pomati has been appointed as new Nautor’s Swan Group Chief Executive Officer. He will work closely with Nautor’s Swan Group President Leonardo Ferragamo and, supported by Vice-President Enrico Chieffi, will assume global executive responsibility for all of Nautor’s activities and companies.
Pomati, 54, is a graduate in Industrial Technology Engineering from Politecnico Milano and he has had a long international experience in the automotive sector in the Pirelli Group where, over some 29 years, he held positions of increasing responsibility. In particular, Pomati was Senior VP of Industrial Operations at global level.
“Swan has been my reference point in the sailing world for a very long time,” explained Pomati, who counts sailing as a life-long passion. “It is an iconic brand with unparalleled worldwide respect and credibility built over 52 years of product excellence. I will bring with me a forensic attention to product detail inspired by a desire to deliver on our clients’ needs. Innovation, technology, quality and reliability will continue to be at the forefront of our vision.”
The Finnish company celebrated its 50th anniversary in 2016. Both Ferragamo and Chieffi had previously held the CEO position but the role had been vacant prior to Pomati’s appointment.
“We have a lot of confidence in his entry into Nautor’s Swan to implement the ambition, vision and strategy of our Group and to develop its potential,” said Ferragamo. “Today, our Company is focused on exciting and challenging objectives such as the complete renewal of the product lines, the development of the worldwide brand representation, the reengineering of the manufacturing footprint and the efficiency of the overall group organization.”
