The Arcturus Group has appointed a Board of Directors for the first time in the company’s history. The Group is a leader tableware and kitchenware, both in the retail and hotel and catering sectors, with brands such as Sambonet, Paderno, Rosenthal and Raynaud and others a part of their portfolio.
The appointment of the board marks a new phase for the group as it moves away from a centralised management by the owners, the Sole Director Cavaliere del Lavoro Pierluigi Coppo and his brother Ing. Franco Coppo, to a Board of Directors.
The new board consists of six members, including two independent members, Dr. Mara Caverni and Dr. Marco Patuano, who join the founders of Arcturus, Dr. Pierluigi Coppo and Ing. Franco Coppo, and their respective son and daughter, Dr. Giovanni Coppo and Ing. Alessandra Coppo, who already hold important management roles in the Group.
“The creation of a board, together with the entry of two highly respected business professionals with national and international experience, adds to an already begun process of managerialisation and represents an important stage in the Group’s growth,” said Pierluigi Coppo.
The board will manage the holding company with plans to soon define strategies and synergies that will guide its development in the near future and improve the internationalisation of the business and the different business realities – the production sites of Sambonet and Paderno in Italy, Rosenthal in Germany, Ercuis and Raynaud in France and the commercial branches in the US and China.
