After growth in 2023 and a promising start to 2024, Brovedani Group is looking to the future with a new organization. Sergio Barel, current President and CEO, has seized this positive moment to step down from leading the Group. “A decision that concludes an exciting journey,” which began thirty-three years ago under the leadership of Eng. Benito Zollia, who led the company from 1972 to 2018. “I will bring the constructive experience gained at Brovedani to new professional activities, while maintaining existing institutional commitments.”

The transition was prepared with the management and Zollia Holding, the company that upholds the innovative spirit and values promoted by the Founder and is now chaired by Massimiliano Zollia: “We want to maintain in Brovedani that family business model that has distinguished us for over fifty years and continues to be a successful paradigm in many virtuous economies.”

On this basis, the change must be sustainable, fostering a generational transition in the spirit of continuity, both within the Group and in external relations with reference markets and stakeholders.

For the future of the company, Zollia Holding has proposed an organization led by two CEOs who have grown within the Group, with the aim of enhancing resources and skills already rooted in the Brovedani soil.

Francesco De Luna, with experience in the American group Arrow and the German group Bosch and twenty years at Brovedani, will be responsible for the value chain: Business Development and Operations.

Ivano Dreon, trained at Brovedani alongside and with the entrepreneurial philosophy of Eng. Zollia, will oversee Finance, Human Resources, and Compliance functions. Supporting the managers, Renato Mascherin will bring his veteran experience of Brovedani Group, becoming its President, with Massimiliano Zollia as Vice President.

With the ‘Search’ Project, Brovedani confirms its commitment to inclusiveness.

We are the first company in Italy to launch this initiative, which originated in the United States in 1996 and is aimed at helping people with disabilities enter the world of work.

On 18 September 2023, the course began, lasting a total of 36 weeks, which includes both classroom and practical training alongside our operators, allowing the young people to experience the company environment in full normality.

Our goal is to allow them to actively contribute to our reality and we are certain that they will bring considerable added value to the company thanks to their unique way of approaching work, their sensitivity, and their desire to integrate into a company context like ours.

We therefore hope to set an example in the fight against discrimination, marginalization and intolerance in order to build an environment that offers everyone the same opportunities.

All that remains for us now is to set off with the determination and enthusiasm that has always distinguished us and face all the surprises that this challenge will bring!

Brovedani, be part of it!
