Vittoria Industries Founder Rudi Campagne Appoints Successors
Tire manufacturer Vittoria has announced a reorganization of its management structure. In a statement, current CEO and founder Rudi Campagne said: “I am reaching the age in which all daily operational issues need to be passed on to the younger generation in order to ensure a gradual and proper transfer of assignments and responsibilities.” As of January 1, 2010 Giovanni Mazzola was been appointed Chief Operation Officer and Managing Director of the Vittoria Group.
Rudi Campagne was one of the four investors who bought Vittoria S.p.A in 1988. He created a new company called Vittoria Industries Ltd. by a complete restructuring of the Italian company into an international operation. In this process the Italian production was transferred to a newly created factory called Lion Tyres (Thailand), today considered as one of the best tire factories in the world.
