Campari Group – Franco Peroni resigns as Managing Director APAC
Following the recent decision by the Campari Group to relocate its APAC regional headquarters from Sydney to Singapore in 2020, the Campari Group has announced the resignation of Franco Peroni as Managing Director APAC.
Peroni has been with the Campari Group for over 15 years, first joining in 2004 as Managing Director Italy. In 2009, he led the Global Product Supply Chain organisation before moving to Sydney to take up his current role, Managing Director APAC, in 2013.
Campari said that during his tenure, Peroni had contributed strongly to the development of the Group and most recently has reset the agenda for growth across the APAC region.
Peroni chose not to relocate to Singapore and will depart the business July 2020. Peroni will hand over his current responsibilities to Matteo Fantacchiotti, who will join the Campari Group as Managing Director APAC, based in Singapore January 2020.
Fantachhiotti brings over 20 years of international experience in the beverage industry, most recently with Carlsberg as Commercial Vice President for Asia, based in Hong Kong.
Campari Group said Fantacchiotti, together with the APAC team, will be well positioned to drive the company's growth agenda across the APAC region.
It also noted that the company remains committed to its Australian and New Zealand business, with no change to its corporate presence in both Sydney and Auckland.
