The 2012 Automotive Executive of the Year Award will be presented to Marco Mattiacci, President and CEO of Ferrari North America. Mattiacci will receive the annual award at the Detroit Athletic Club in May.
“Since taking the helm of Ferrari’s North American operations, which includes North, Central, and South America, Marco Mattiacci has grown sales in these markets 20 percent. This impressive growth has allowed Ferrari to hold its top position in the ultra-exclusive, yet increasingly competitive segment of the global luxury automotive industry,” notes Robert Djurovic, executive director of the Automotive Executive of the Year Award program, and director of automotive services North America, DNV.
“This year, the nominating committee chose to recognize Marco Mattiacci as an emerging leader whose accomplishments are impressive and worthy of recognition. Mr. Mattiacci and his team’s success in expanding the culture of one of the world’s most significant and exclusive brands is at the heart of this nomination.”
