In his inaugural speech, De Vito thanked outgoing President Lorenzo Primultini: "He has managed to lead the Association through one of the most difficult times in its history, without losing sight of the values that such an association must embody". Afterwards, the newly elected President introduced Vice-President Marianna Daschini to the members, most of whom were "on" digitally, and stressed the importance of a young female leader in this position. Daschini has been celebrating great successes as managing director of Greda for several years.
recently, De Vito addressed the issues he has set himself for his term of
office: Promoting open dialogue between member companies and other
associations; focusing resources on strategic projects such as access to
credit, business development and supply chain initiatives; supporting and
developing member companies' brands; and creating an environment conducive to
the exchange of best practices in market strategy, sales and technology trends.
