The appointment of Simone Ferrari, who joined the Company in October 2012 as VP Communication for all of the Group’s brands, is part of the reorganization of the management team directly reporting to Mr Pasquale Natuzzi, CEO and President.

In 2010 he became creative director for BCUBE (independent agency of PUBLICIS GROUPE). He is a copywriter. He won many international acknowledgements as creative director, among which the New York Festival, the London International Award and the Amburgo Film Festival.

The challenge that Pasquale Natuzzi has asked me to undertake is for me of great motivation and source of particular pride” commented Simone Ferrari. “ In a more and more competitive and global environment, a Group like ours has to operate in the whole world, by means of projects that are strategically solid as well as flexible in their execution, so to be effectively and coherently implemented in different Countries. I will carry on with the job already started in order to further strengthen the Natuzzi Group’s positioning as the ambassador of the made-in-Italy in the world”.
