Natuzzi Appoints New Executives
Leather furniture vendor Natuzzi has named Maria Rosaria Bonifacio and Rossana Berardinelli chief human resources and organization officer, and chief finance, legal and IT officer, respectively.
Bonifacio is responsible for effectively developing Natuzzi Group's international programs of human resources management.
"I am particular enthusiastic about having the opportunity to join an Italian multinational group as the Natuzzi Group is, that has been the ambassador of the made-in-Italy in the world for decades," she said. "The training and professional growth of talents within the Group represents a strategic and fundamental component to strengthen the success of our production. One of my primarily goals will be the development of a corporate culture that makes people's appreciation a cornerstone for our own business."
Before joining the Natuzzi Group, Bonifacio worked for Ericsson where, from August 2011, she was global director for outsourcing processes, driving business transformation processes at worldwide level. She joined Ericsson in 2001.
Before joining the Natuzzi Group, Berardinelli was senior finance director for Terex Port Equipment, a division of Terex Corporation, a manufacturer of industrial equipment. Her professional career has evolved in finance with multinational companies, leaders in consumer goods, semi-durable goods and service industries.
"In a competitive and global marketplace, the Finance, Legal and IT team should help the company in making decisions that maximize profit and generate incremental cash flow. I believe that the Finance, Legal & IT team can support the selling, marketing and manufacturing teams in achieving their objectives, and in developing the business at a worldwide level," said Berardinelli. "I am very excited for this professional opportunity and I know I can count on the strong skills of all team members to help the Natuzzi Group carry on with its usual strength in its role as the ambassador of 'made-in-Italy' in the world."
