Pirelli starts headhunting for new leader

Pirelli & C. S.p.A is looking for a new leader to replace general manager co-CEO Angelos Papadimitriou, who has decided to leave his role, of just six months, at the Italian tire group. 


Papadimitriou, who is seeking to return to his previous career-path, has offered to continue to serve on the Milan group’s board and ‘strategies committee’, said a Pirelli statement.


Prior to joining Pirelli, Papadimitriou was CEO of Italian packaging systems firm Coesia for ten years and was previously president and managing director of GlaxoSmithKline.


Pirelli has now launched a process to identify “a figure on the market who will be able to support the execution of the next Strategic Plan, with an enhancement of the internal management.”


Executive vice chairman and CEO Marco Tronchetti Provera, thanked Papadimitriou for his contribution to the development of a strategic plan for Pirelli over recent months.
