He succeeds Martin Heim, who chose to leave the group at the end of last year.
An Italian native and skilled in mechanical engineering, Giuseppe Viggiani brings extensive sales experience to his new position. His previous assignments include Area Sales Manager for Latin America with Siemens as well as company management positions with elevator manufacturer Schindler and most recently with SBB Cargo, the Swiss Railway. “For me, the customer is king,” says Giuseppe Viggiani, who considers the presence of sales personnel enormously important. The first trade fairs of the year will give him the opportunity to familiarise himself intensively with the glass industry.
