Antonio Baldaccini as the Chief Executive Officer of UmbraGroup

On behalf of Umbra Cuscinetti’s Board of Directors, I am very pleased to announce that we have chosen Antonio Baldaccini to serve as the Chief Executive Officer of UmbraGroup.

Antonio’s appointment is a clear demonstration of how much the major shareholder of UmbraGroup (The Baldaccini Family) believes in the future of the company and is committed to promoting the style, values and spirit of the founder, Valter.

Antonio has had a long and distinguished career with Umbra Cuscinetti. He joined Umbra Cuscinetti S.p.A. in 1995. He has held numerous management and leadership positions and he was named as a member of the Boards of Directors for both Umbra Cuscinetti S.p.A. and Umbra Cuscinetti Inc. (subsidiary of Umbra Cuscinetti S.p.A) in 2008. 

In last twelve months Antonio served Umbra Cuscinetti S.p.A. as Executive Vice President of Aerospace and Electromechanical Business Unit.

In March, 2012 Antonio was Vice President and General Manager of Umbra Cuscinetti Inc.. Prior to this assignment, Antonio was appointed as Vice President of Business Development for Umbra Cuscinetti S.p.A. In that role, Antonio was responsible for maintaining Umbra's business relationships with The Boeing Company and to develop new business with OEM Customers located in the West Cost of USA.

Between 2006 and 2010 Antonio managed the statement of work that Umbra Cuscinetti S.p.A had with The Boeing Company  Commercial Division. This covered ballscrews for flaps and stabilizers installed in the Boeing commercial platforms: B737/747/767/777. Antonio led the team assigned to the statement of work: Sales, Supplier Management, Design, Fabrication, Manufacturing and Quality.

Antonio holds a bachelor and a master in business administration degree from Loyola Marymount Univeristy Los Angeles.

It is my conviction that Antonio is an inspired choice by our Board. I expect the team at UmbraGroup will enthusiastically support him. He is a compelling and charismatic communicator who cares deeply about organizational development, teams, and the individual careers of people who work for UmbraGroup. Most of all, he has a powerful sense of respect for and commitment to our consumers. 

I will support Antonio in his transition to CEO, and I will continue to serve as Umbra Cuscinetti’s  Executive Chairman for an indefinite period.

Please join me in congratulating Antonio on becoming the Chief Executive Officer of UmbraGroup.
