Shortly after the resignation of long-time COO Andrea Lonardi, Angelini Wines & Estates announces the change of managing director. Ettore Nicoletto, who had been leading the group since March 2020, will be replaced by Alberto Lusini starting May 1, 2024. According to Angelini Wines & Estates, the decision was made jointly and by mutual agreement.

Alberto Lusini studied engineering and business administration at the University of Bologna and is well-known in the industry. Although he has been in a senior position at Massimo Zanetti Beverage Group (including Segafredo Espresso) for the past four years, he worked in the wine industry for 15 years prior to that. Within the Mezzacorona Group, he rose from Sales and Marketing Director to COO of the company's US import firm, Prestige Wine Imports, in New York. He then gained experience at Allegrini Group as Sales and Marketing Director, and most recently as Export Director at Lunelli Group (Ferrari) in Trento.

"We thank Ettore for his contribution to the growth of AW&E and wish him every success in his future projects. We welcome Alberto, who will continue the path of positioning and growth of our wine brands in an increasingly global market", commented Sergio Marullo di Condojanni, Managing Director of Angelini Industries.
