The Italian company said its board of directors, the management, and all employees and collaborators of Marangoni participate in the mourning for Mr De Alessandri's untimely death on July 19th and extend their condolences to his family.
De Alessandri joined the Marangoni Group in 1987 and was the long-time CEO of the parent company, ending a 30-year career in 2017.
During this time, he was also chairman of Marangoni Group subsidiaries such as Eurorubber (2011-2016), Pneusmarket (2001-2016) and Marangoni Tread (2003-2009), managing director of Marangoni Tyre (2004-2017) and director of Marangoni Meccanica (2008-2017).
In addition to holding top roles within the group, he has held positions in other industry bodies such as the Plastic Rubber Federation, ETRMA (European Tyre & Rubber Manufacturers Association) and Ecopneus Scpa (of which he was also President in 2014).
His contribution has deeply marked the history of the Marangoni Group and will remain rooted in the company's memory.
Vittorio Marangoni, chairman of the Marangoni Group, said: "The news has shocked the company as well as the family. There are no words for such a circumstance; we all join in the grief."
In a statement Marangoni said that the entire company expresses its deepest and most heartfelt condolences for the passing of a competent, conscientious person always committed to his work with great seriousness and passion.
