Ucima: Matteo Gentili elected as the new Chairman

Matteo Gentili (58) was officially elected Chairman of Ucima during the association’s annual meeting recently held at Acetaia Leonardi in Magreta (Modena). He takes over from Enrico Aureli, CEO of Robopac and OCME, who served as the association’s Chairman for the four-year period 2016 to 2020.

I will serve as chairman for the first two years of the four-year term and will then hand over to my colleague Riccardo Cavanna, who for the time being will serve as vice-chairman in charge of association development.”

Matteo Gentili named Roberto Paltrinieri from Tetra Pak as another vice-chairman with responsibility for technological aspects. Luciano Sottile from Goglio, a member of Ucima’s Board of Directors and former vice chairman, has been tasked with overseeing promotional activities.
