Ferruccio Luppi, CEO of Italy’s Azimut-Benetti Group, has replaced Paolo Casani as CEO of the company’s Yachts business line. Casani is leaving the company to pursue other professional opportunities.

“I would like to thank Paolo Casani for his expertise and professional commitment in meeting the challenges of recent years,” says Azimut-Benetti president Paolo Vitelli. “I am referring in particular to the launch and development of Yachtique (the group division dedicated to boat owner services) as well as the major reorganisation of the Yachts business line. We wish him all the best in his future endeavours.”

In addition to his new responsibilities, Ferrucio Luppi will continue in his role as group CEO.

Azimut-Benetti operates across three main lines of business: Yachts (boats up to 30m), Megayachts (boats over 30m), and Yachtique (boat owner services).
