Roberto Pietrantonio has been appointed as the new managing director of Mazda Motor Italy. The 47 year old, currently director of communications and sales planning at Mazda Italy, replaces Andrea Fiaschetti, whose untimely death in spring came as a shock in the industry.
An engineer by trade, Pietrantonio began his automotive career with the Fiat group before joining Mazda Italy in 2003, gradually assuming increasing responsibility in marketing and communications. The Naples native became communications director in 2012, and also shared the task of managing Mazda Italy’s operations over the past five months with Piero Giardini, who is director of customer service and dealer development.
