New top people at Pagani Pens
Published on 28.03.2023
After five years as Co-Director and Chief Sales Marketing Officer, Eckhard Sohns is to leave Swiss company Pagani Pens on personal grounds at the end of March 2023. Against that background, the Administrative Board has restructured the company’s management team.
At the management level, Rossana Porotti, already Co-Director, will in future be supported by Alessio Marotta, who, in addition to his CFO role, moves up onto the Board as Co-Director. As Chief Commercial Officer, Tom de Kleyn assumes overall responsibility for sales and marketing within the writing instruments division comprising the brands Prodir and Pigra; he remains CEO of the Prodir subsidiary in the Netherlands. Florian Seidenberg, alongside his role as Sales Director, will be sharing the executive management of the German Prodir GmbH with Rossana Porotti in the future.
Giorgio Pagani, founder and VR President of Pagani Pens, issued a statement in order to thank Eckhard Sohns and emphasised the continuity at the top: “Over the course of his longstanding, loyal collaboration, Mr Sohns has made a crucial contribution to the success of the Prodir brand. We owe him enormous thanks for his extraordinary commitment and wish him all the best for the future. We are on course for continuity with the new management team. Rossana Porotti, Alessio Marotta, Tom de Kleyn and Florian Seidenberg are experienced employees with proven industry knowledge, who have already demonstrated their strong leadership qualities in various roles in the company. The Administrative Board is convinced that, in a context that continues to be highly dynamic, they will lead Pagani Pens successfully into the next development phase.” www.prodir.com
