With his consolidated North American experience in the automotive industry and aftermarket, having held senior roles in the Alliance (Nissan-Renault-Mitsubishi) and FCA Group (Magneti Marelli), Berardi will have the task of strengthening the business’s command of the market and its development, executing the strategies and commercial policies best suited to consolidating Pirelli’s leadership in the Premium and Prestige segments.
