Untimely death of the Chief Executive Officer and General Manager of Avio Group, Orazio Ragni

The whole Company, stricken with sorrow at this sudden loss, feels particularly close to the grief of Orazio Ragni’s family. He will always be remembered for his strong and energetic personality, but also for his empathetic and cheerful outlook and the way he was able to transmit to the Company enormous enthusiasm and strong sense of performance.

Mr. Ragni, who was 49, returned to Italy in December 2008 to take over as head of Avio Group following an 18-year career at an international level.

The Chairman of Avio Group, Alan Bowkett, and the Board of Directors are at work to ensure the continued management of the Company together with all the top management.
