RINA Consulting names new CEO

Alberto Cavaggioni has been appointed as the new CEO of Italy headquartered engineering consultancy RINA Consulting. He takes over from Roberto Carpaneto who led the consultancy since 2007 and will now serve as President. One of his key responsibilities will be to grow the company’s business in foreign markets.

Cavaggioni has 20 years of experience and graduated in Business & Administration from the Luigi Bocconi University of Milan, where he earned an Executive Master in Marketing & Sales.

Following roles of increasing responsibility in the industrial (Saint Gobain and Hilti) and automotive sectors (he was EMEA Manager of the Alfa Romeo and Maserati brands for Europe and China), he was Vice President Sales & Service for North America at the Palfinger Group, a multinational active in industrial lifting systems.

Commenting on his appointment, Cavaggioni said, “It’s really exciting for me to move from the world of industry to that of services, especially to enter a company like RINA Consulting which is very active on issues of social interest such as energy, industry, mobility and infrastructure. I thank Ugo Salerno and Roberto Carpaneto for their trust and the 3,000 people – whose great skills and passion I have already appreciated – and with whom I will work side by side to further grow the company, especially in foreign markets.”

RINA provides a wide range of services across the energy and mobility, marine, certification, infrastructure and real estate and industry sectors. It has a global presence with over 4,400 employees and 200 offices in 70 countries worldwide.

Carpaneto concluded, “His experience and knowledge will allow us to continue down the path that led RINA Consulting to be recognised as Italy’s top engineering consultancy in 2021, and one of the most important in the international market. We want to continue to provide our expertise to public and private stakeholders to help realise the most important projects both in Italy and globally.”

In June 2022, Cundall named Carole O’Neil as its Global Managing Partner and later in the month, WSP Middle East announced two senior appointments to its Property & Buildings business. In July, Witteveen+Bos EMEA DMCC names Rob van den Boomen as its new Managing Director.
