GEODIS appoints new managing director for Italy
Fabrizio Airoldi has taken on the role of managing director of GEODIS in Italy and is responsible for the freight forwarding and contract logistics activities in Italy.
Fabrizio joined GEODIS in 2006 as management control manager after a degree in business administration and experience in the logistics sector as well as in industry.
His academic background led him to carry out different roles within the financial function before making a decisive step into operations where he continued for three years in the Americas region of GEODIS. It was there that he held the position of deputy COO with direct responsibility for logistics activities in the LATAM region.
Back in Italy in 2018, he was appointed general manager of GEODIS for the contract logistics activity in Italy. He took up his new position as managing director of Italy on January 1, 2021 replacing Francesco Cazzaniga.
“Fabrizio’s extensive experience and his in-depth knowledge of the Italian market will be key in strengthening our presence in Italy which is the second largest country in the WEMEA region of GEODIS in terms of turnover,” says Laurent Parat, executive vice president, contract logistics and president and CEO of Western Europe, Middle East & Africa (WEMEA).
"I am very proud of this appointment and I thank the Group for trusting me," comments Fabrizio Airoldi. "For me this is a gratifying personal achievement in my logistics management career and I am looking forward to the new challenges ahead I am sure that the professionalism and knowledge of all my colleagues in the Italian organisation will allow GEODIS to continue along the steady path of growth it has achieved in recent years. We will continue to serve our customers with a determination to help them overcome their logistics constraints".
