Lead battery manufacturing technology firm Sovema Group has named Francesco Capuzzo as its sales and marketing director.
He returned to the sales department, where he had previously spent fifteen years as an area manager and sales director, after holding different managerial roles at the Italian company.
During his former period in the sales department, Capuzzo supported its lead-acid customers in the definition and realisation of their projects, from new battery plants to build up from the ground, to the continuous innovation required by the most expert battery manufacturers worldwide.
Following a company reorganisation in 2016, Capuzzo took up the field service and operations department lead.
In the past six years, he carried out significant organisational improvements that are bringing their fruits now, said Sovema.
Giambattista Piazzola, has taken up the field service and operations manager position at the company after previously working as Sovema’s chief of technical assistance and testing quality control manager.
Capuzzo said: “What I liked most in these past few years was supporting the people I was coordinating in their professional growth and awareness of being part of a team.
“We learnt that sharing the technical knowledge with all the team is a key asset in the growth of the team itself and the whole company.
“I feel excited to restore a direct line with the market, facing its changes with my new baggage of experiences and skills. I am especially thrilled to play a role in the advanced battery market with Solith, taking part in the huge transition towards a green mobility system that is impacting everybody’s daily lives in Europe and beyond.”
The former sales and marketing director Eng Marcello Fantoni, left the company to undertake a new business opportunity.
Sovema said they were grateful to Marcello for his contribution to the company over the years, and sincerely wish him all the best for the rest of his career and personal life.
