Tower crane manufacturer Raimondi has appointed industry veteran Diego Borgna as deputy managing director and operations manager.
Borgna joins the company following two years working as a management consultant, but has spent most of his career working with the Manitowoc crane group and its acquisitions, having joined Potain in 1997 as operations director at the Niella Tanaro production facility in Italy. Manitowoc acquired Potain in 2001 and Borga remained on board. In 2011 he was promoted to managing director Italy and director of lean projects for Europe, Middle East and Africa. Two years later he was made senior vice president of global tower crane operations, leaving the company in mid 2018.
In his new role he will be responsible for leading Raimondi's operations as well as working with commercial director, Cristian Badin, to develop the company’s latest product ranges and working towards spreading the company's geographic coverage.
Borgna said: “As a believer in the company’s values and mission, I am pleased to be joining Raimondi Cranes. The company is seeking further growth and market expansion, at a pivotal and highly opportune time in its history. Drawing on my previous experience in implementation and modernisation of lean production, I am excited to begin working closely with my colleagues in operations as well as the commercial, and technical offices.”
Chief executive Domenico Ciano, added: “I am pleased to welcome Borgna to Raimondi Cranes, and I look forward to working closely with an industry veteran with such storied experience. We have ambitious plans in the pipeline that will draw extensively on his expertise and knowledge; invaluable resources that will now be put to work for Raimondi’s future growth.”
