Changes are happening at Arper: Armin Broger is the new CEO. This is part of a reorganization of the chain of command of Marco’s Group, the mother company of Arper and other brands.
The new CEO takes the place of Vincenzo Rivizzigno, who for 15 years has worked alongside the President Claudio Feltrin on the path of international growth of Arper. In any case, this is not a divorce. The collaboration between the manager and the brand specializing in seating, tables and complements for public spaces and the home continues: Rivizzigno is now a part of Gruppo Marco’s, in charge of industrial development.
These decisions are part of the consolidation and new positioning of Arper in the premium segment of design furnishings on a global level. The President Claudio Feltrin comments: “In the name of the Feltrin family I would like to thank Vincenzo for the years he has devoted to Arper, with constant commitment and energy, and for the results he has decisively contributed to achieve. I am sure he will reach extraordinary new goals in his new position. With the same enthusiasm, we also welcome Armin to the team.”
Armin Broger, 58 years old, assumes this new role in the wake of experiences with other leading international companies: he held a comparable position at B&B Italia and has worked on the creation and development of fashion brands, including Esprit GmbH, Levi Strauss & Co, where he was President for EMEA, Tommy Hilfiger, where he was COO EMEA, and Diesel, as Global General Director. Earlier references include Walt Disney Company and Lego AS in Billund, Denmark.
“Armin Broger’s international experience and capacity for dialogue will undoubtedly make him an authoritative guide, capable of conveying Arper towards ambition new goals,” Feltrin concludes.
