Italy-headquartered tower crane manufacturer Raimondi Cranes has appointed Eng. Domenico Ciano to the role of chief executive officer with immediate effect. Ciano succeeds Ahmed Alkhoshaibi, who has been Raimondi’s chief executive officer since 2009.
Ciano joined Raimondi in October 2014 as a technical director. He was soon promoted to chief operations officer where, according to Raimondi, he was instrumental in developing research and development capabilities and for delivering a number of products to the global market.
Commenting on the appointment, outgoing chief executive officer Alkhoshaibi said, “as Raimondi’s chief executive for more than a decade, I am pleased to see our succession planning process activated. I am confident and proud that Raimondi will have a leader that both values its heritage and that will further invigorate the significant upward trajectory we have experienced these past years. The wealth of in-house experience, together with his innovative approach to the crane industry, are only two of the reasons that the board of directors advocated for his appointment. I look forward to seeing Eng. Ciano’s passion, loyalty and drive rewarded through his position as our new chief executive.”
