Deltatre has announced that CEO Giampiero Rinaudo is set to retire after more than 35 years with the business. Current deputy CEO and chief commercial officer Andrea Marini will succeed him at the end of October.
Rinaudo, one of three company founders in 1986, will step down to assume a new role as non-executive chairman and board member. He is making this transition on the back of successfully leading the company through decades of continued expansion and the development of crucial technologies that serve many of the world’s most influential sports and media properties. He will remain a substantial shareholder in the business.
Marini has been deputy CEO and chief commercial officer since mid-2019
Marini has held the role of deputy CEO and chief commercial officer since mid-2019. He is well-equipped to lead Deltatre’s expert management teams across hubs in 18 key cities worldwide, with record year-on-year financial growth and successful expansions into North America and Asia under his belt. Marini will also maintain his seat on the board, representing the interest of his family shareholding in the company.
Rinaudo said: “It is a testament to our incredibly talented and dedicated staff to see how the company has adapted, evolved and grown since we first opened our doors so many years ago. Together, we have established Deltatre as an essential partner to more than 130 of the most significant sports leagues, federations, and media companies across the globe.
“Andrea is exceptionally talented, cares deeply about the organisation and understands what makes Deltatre so unique. There is no person better equipped to lead the company as it enters the next chapter in its growth. Of course, I must also thank George Pyne. Not only is he a great business partner, but he is also a great friend.”
