Fresh start for Marina Torres

Marina Torres, the global key account manager for Italian low level aerial lift manufacturer Bravi is leaving the company for pastures anew. We now know that she will be European key account manager at Toyota Material Handling Europe.

She joined the business as a marketing assistant in 2004 and before very long became an indispensable and core part of the growing business. Her progression began with the appointment as an area manager and was soon followed by a promotion to sales manager for the English speaking markets and more. She took up her current post in 2020.

Speaking of her departure she said: "As many of you may already know, after almost 20 fulfilling years at Bravi Platforms I am turning the page to a new chapter in my life. To say I had the time of my life at Bravi would be an understatement. In 2004, Pierino Bravi gave me a chance as a fresh graduate, an opportunity to grow professionally and as an individual. We went through a lot, navigated several challenges, built something great, and I couldn't be prouder of everything that we have accomplished together.
To all my ex-teammates...we surely had a blast didn't we! You have been the best ‘partners in crime’ anyone could ask for, and I'll miss our daily interactions more than words could ever express."

"To my customers, friends and all the amazing people I've had the pleasure of working with, thank you for the memories and knowledge that I will take with me long into the future. You've made this ride a truly special one. While it's a bit tough to say goodbye, I'm ready for what lies ahead—embracing fresh challenges, gaining new experiences, embarking in new adventures...I just can’t wait to see where this new journey takes me.”

All of us here at Vertikal wish her every success and happiness, no matter what she chooses to do next, or where her future might take her. She has always been a consummate professional and a pleasure to know.
