Moreno Roncato has been named managing director of Milan-based Carle & Montanari SpA by the Sacmi Group, sole shareholder of the company. The Sacmi Group chose Roncato to steer the historic 103-year-old Carle & Montanari organization through the challenges of the future.
Pietro Cassani, general manager of the Sacmi Group, explains, “We have been debating for some time on what would be the best strategy for the future of Carle & Montanari. We even considered selling or merging with other companies, since this appears to be a trend in the industry. However, we decided the best way to proceed was to reorganize the company with a new leadership to face the challenges of this market.”
Roncato holds a degree in Engineering from Politecnico di Torino, Torino, Italy, and an MBA from Clemson University, Clemson, S.C. He brings experience in the design, manufacturing and sales of industrial equipment, mainly in textiles, plastic and the chocolate industry. He has worked in various mid-size companies, most recently as president of Carle & Montanari USA in Raleigh, N.C.
For the time being, Roncato will continue to serve the firm’s customers in the North American market, returning to participate in major industry events. Since the early 1900s, Carle & Montanari has been designing and building machinery and equipment for the transformation of cocoa and the processing, moulding and packaging of chocolate.
