The election was held during Gimav's recent general meeting.
Schiatti says her main focus in this role will be to implement effective strategies to promote Italian-made production in markets with a high potential for Italian glass technology.
"The main goal of the association is to increase the visibility of producers on the global market by offsetting competition from other countries," says Schiatti. "For this very reason Gimav is present at the topmost international exhibitions, where it organizes and coordinates the participation of member companies. The association is also working on standards, and is constantly in contact with Italian and overseas government authorities, as well as on communications, by promptly updating all its members on all the latest news for the sector. Over the coming years we will continue to work in these two areas, which are aimed at promoting the quality of Italian products."
Schiatti has served as chair of Gimav since 2008. Prior to joining Gimav, she spent 28 years working as the sales manager for Italy-based Schiatti Angelo s.r.l.
