The Azimut Benetti Group, an ambassador for Made in Italy throughout the world, after having been present through a licensing agreement for more than twenty years in the Brazilian market and selling more than 500 boats, in 2010 has decided to invest in the creation of a new production site in the State of Santa Catarina: Azimut do Brazil. This wholly owned company formed under local law confirms the strategic importance of this market.
The Azimut do Brazil team is pleased to announce the appointment of Davide Breviglieri as its new Managing Director. He will report directly to Paolo Casani, CEO of the Business Line Yachts division. Davide Breviglieri, 45, has lived in Brazil for twelve years and gained invaluable experience with some of the most important Italian multinational companies, enabling him to mature an in-depth understanding of the workings of the Brazilian market.
Davide Breviglieri will work alongside Felipe Berra, whose existing responsibilities as supervisor of industrial operations and the supply chain have been stepped up. The new team is to be completed with the arrival of a new CFO, Henrique Toledo, with fifteen years professional experience in the Finance sector.
The new team will be responsible for developing production, expertise and synergy between the Italian and Brazilian companies as well as doubling production each year for the next three years. The team aims to reach an average output of 100 boats a year. Avigliana, June 11 2012
