During the final greetings of the Assomac Annual General Assembly, held on Friday, November 10, in the iconic Sala delle Colonne of the Leonardo da Vinci Museum of Science and Technology in Milan, President Maria Vittoria Brustia thanked Vago, who will end his working relationship with Assomac at the end of the year.

In his place, Agostino Apolito will take over the reins of the association and of the international trade fair Simac Tanning Tech from January 2024. Agostino Apolito joined Confindustria Firenze in 1996, becoming its Vice President in 2016. In October 2022, he left Confindustria and joined Assomac as Senior Manager.

After nearly 30 years of experience as Area Coordinator, providing guidance, assistance and support to companies on finance and corporate law, governance, internationalisation, innovation, investment policies and aggregation and management strategies, he brings a wealth of expertise in areas of strategic interest to the association.

Agostino Apolito’s long experience in the confederation of industry has enabled him to define his commitment to Assomac in continuity with that of his predecessor Roberto Vago. His commitment translates into understanding the dynamics of growth and innovation, analysing skills and technology needs, and supporting the interests of member companies with development projects and strategies.

The key points of his role as General Manager of Assomac will be communication, above all with a view to collaboration with the associations of the leather industry; the development of sector policies to aggregate and enhance the heritage of skills, professionalism and historicity of member companies; making Made with Italian Technology a guarantee of high quality standards and sustainability in its most tangible and real sense; training with the development of new partnerships with technical high school and a renewal process of the Simac Tanning Tech exhibition.

Assomac wished Agostino good luck in his new role and thanked Roberto for his valuable contribution and work over the years.
