Paolo Casani is the new CEO of the Azimut Yachts division.

JANUARY 2011

Paolo Casani is the new CEO of the Azimut Yachts Division of the Azimut-Benetti Group. He first joined the company in ‘08 after 25 years of experience in the fashion industry with spells with Armani, Valentino, Calvin Klein and Ferragamo; thus far he has been responsible for the yachtbuilding group’s Yachtique services division.
Paolo Casani takes over from Gianni Cucco, who has been caretaking the post for the past year for chairman Paolo Vitelli. However, Cucco will remain with the group in a support role.
At the same time the group has decided to split its activities into two main areas: boats up to 30m headed by Paolo Casani, including the Atlantis division headed by Luca Sburlati, and boats over 30m, including the Azimut Grande Collection, which will be directed by Vincenzo Poerio, the longstanding CEO of Benetti.
