Corrado Di Giovanni has been appointed chief financial officer at Deltatre. He will succeed Gianluca Cirio, who is stepping down from the position after more than 18 years with the company. Cirio will remain at Deltatre until 31 July 2021, to ensure a smooth transition.
Di Giovanni brings a wealth of sector experience to the company, having spent nearly 15 years working at Fox Networks Group, most recently as vice president of group finance, Europe and Africa. During his tenure, he established a new centre of excellence for the EMEA finance function and led an annual profit and loss with a reported turnover of $1.2 billion.
Di Giovanni joined Fox Networks Group in 2005 as an intern, taking on increasing levels of responsibility in maintaining the financial stability and delivering profitable growth across his tenure. Most recently, he has consulted numerous start-ups across the video streaming sector.
Giampiero Rinaudo, CEO of Deltatre, said: “Corrado is a welcome addition to the leadership team at Deltatre. His deep and extensive experience in leading the financial operations for global media entities means he can hit the ground running as we navigate an acceleration in the adoption of our services by major sport and entertainment properties worldwide. I am extremely confident Corrado will play a major role in supporting our enduring growth trajectory.
“On behalf of the team here at Deltatre, I also want to thank Gianluca Cirio for his outstanding contribution to Deltatre over almost two decades.”
Di Giovanni said: “I am thrilled to join Deltatre, a company I have long viewed as transformational in the way billions of fans consume content every day. I look forward to supporting the business in its ambitious plans for the future while maintaining its financial health and delivering value for all stakeholders.”
As CFO, Di Giovanni will hold ultimate accountability for all accounting, financial planning and analysis functions, and lead the global finance team. His responsibilities will also extend to the legal office.
