Nicola Panzani has been appointed as the new CEO of IMA Coffee Petroncini, guiding the company towards new important goals, the product of important synergies. He succeeds Claudio Giberti, who had been CEO of the Ferrara, Italy based company since 1990.
Panzani started at IMA as project manager in 2017, and in 2018 he assumed the position of strategic marketing manager. He most recently served as sales director of IMA Coffee where Panzani actively contributed to building the IMA Coffee Hub and developing important synergies in the coffee world.
“Commitment and continuous research have worked as essential tools that have enabled Petroncini to reach very important milestone over the past year: 100 years creating solutions for the coffee industry,” said Giberti, who has assumed the position of director of special R&D projects at IMA Coffee Petroncini. “I’m really glad to pass on this leading role to a very talented person, whom I deeply trust. [Nicola] will guide the company towards newer, broader horizons.
Commenting on his new CEO role, Nicola Panzani said: “Since the establishment of the IMA Coffee Hub in 2017, the company has been growing exponentially. Thanks to the support of IMA, which has studied, examined and grasped the keys to the company’s success, Petroncini now has all the resources to embark on new pathways in the projects in which it excels and to explore new markets and new technologies to keep on evolving. I’m so proud to be part of this big and innovative company.”
