Benetti appoints new head of sales


Italian shipyard Benetti has appointed Roberto Corno as its new worldwide sales director.

Corno was the sales area manager for South-East Europe before this appointment. He joined Benetti in early 2005 as project manager and has since held different roles in the commercial area.

In this role, Corno will be reporting to Christos Ramnialis, Benetti’s general manager. He said: “Roberto… will coordinate our sales team and I’m sure will significantly contribute to the achievement of our ambitious goals for the coming year.

“He has a particularly wide range of expertise, gained over the 13 years he has been working at Benetti, where he had the chance to increase his knowledge regarding all the major aspect of the yacht building industry, from project management and shipbuilding to sales. Roberto will bring the necessary energy and enthusiasm necessary to expand Benetti’s sales and markets coverage especially towards new growing markets.”
