Italian motoryacht producer Benetti has promoted Roberto Corno to the role of worldwide sales director.

Corno began his career at Benetti in early 2005 as a project manager, later taking on more responsibility in roles such as South East Europe sales area manager. He will report to Christos Ramnialis, Benetti’s general manager.

“Roberto in his new role will coordinate our sales team and I’m sure will significantly contributes to the achievement of our ambitious goals for the coming year,” says Ramnialis.

“He has a particularly wide range of expertise, gained over the 13 years he has been working at Benetti, where he had the chance to increase his knowledge regarding all the major aspects of the yacht-building industry, from project management and shipbuilding to sales."

Benetti designs, builds and markets three product lines: “Class” composite yachts from 30m-42m, “Custom” steel and aluminium yachts from 45m-90m, and “Giga” for yachts over 90m in length. The company employs around 1,000 people at two production sites in Livorno and the headquarters in Viareggio.
