The changes are intended to steady Tenova around the two businesses in which the company operates – metals and mining – so as to better focus on each’s specific priorities, market approach and global presence.
In the context of this reorganization, Andrea Lovato, the former Tenova CEO, will assume the role of TAKRAF CEO, while the role of Tenova CEO has been assigned to Roberto Pancaldi, previously CEO of the Metals Division. TAKRAF and Tenova are indeed two strong brands that will continue to be a leader in their respective markets.
“The extraordinary situation caused by the outbreak of COVID-19 at a global level has accelerated the rethinking of our business model and the definition of a new structure to better fit the complexity of the current business scenario, with a leaner structure and a clearer definition of roles” – commented Andrea Lovato.
This change will leave more autonomy to the respective CEOs in developing their businesses and in building their long-term sustainability while they concentrate on short-term consolidation and continuity.
