Raimondi Cranes Sees Change in Senior Leadership as CEO Takes Sabbatical

July 20, 2021 – Raimondi Cranes SpA, European manufacturer of topless tower and luffing-jib cranes, has seen a change in its senior leadership.

The company’s board of directors has approved CEO Domenico Ciano’s taking a one-year sabbatical, and Diego Borgna has become Acting CEO.

Borgna, a crane industry veteran with more than two decades of hands-on experience in the global heavy lifting machinery sector, initially joined Raimondi as deputy managing director, also spearheading operations.

To facilitate a smooth and timely transition in senior leadership, Ciano and Borgna have been working closely over the past few months, alongside Commercial Director Cristian Badin.

“Of utmost importance to Raimondi is the valued relationship the company has with our official agent roster, in tandem with ensuring satisfaction for our clients from all over the world,” said Borgna, discussing the importance of the Commercial Department. “My work since March has overlapped a great deal with the commercial team as we planned our expansion and next steps. This interdepartmental collaboration will serve the company well taken in context together with my appointment as acting CEO,” he added.

Raimondi’s board of directors reiterated its strong support of Ciano’s decision to embark on the one year sabbatical, lauding his commitment to his personal goals of health and wellness.

“I am now completely disengaged from the company’s day-to-day operations, as well as high-level decisionmaking, effective immediately,” said Ciano. “I express my thanks to the board of directors for their understanding and support during this time. I extend my best wishes to Mr. Borgna for the coming 12 months, and I hope to see Raimondi continue to go from strength to strength under his tenure.”
