Stefano Pisoni has joined international fastener specialist TR VIC SpA, part of the Trifast Plc group of companies, as the new managing director.
An inspirational leader with a proven track record in several industry sectors, Stefano has many years of experience working in senior management roles for a number of influential corporations, including Italian automotive giants Magneti Marelli SpA and Pirelli Steelcord. His previous roles and his in-depth knowledge of international business markets combine to make him a natural choice to lead TR VIC into the future.
The appointment of Stefano underlines TR’s ongoing commitment to expand its European operations, especially in the wake of continuing demand increases across the region. TR VIC is a hugely important part of the company’s infrastructure and the arrival of Stefano will dovetail with a major focus on increasing capacity to reflect growth in vital markets. The Italian operation has recently passed an important four day audit as part of its IATF 16949 assessment.
In the wake of the Covid-19 pandemic, one of Stefano’s more pressing responsibilities will be to guide the company’s adjustment to new working conditions and practices. Supporting staff members during this difficult time will be vital, as will ensuring safe working environments and responding appropriately to the need for more flexible working. TR VIC has more than 120 employees, so this flexibility will be a must have.
Andrew Nuttall, European managing director at TR Fastenings, commented: “During his career, Stefano has displayed a strong focus on innovation, product development and opportunities to increase market share, and we look forward to heralding a new era for TR VIC both regionally and within the global operation.”
