And not just in France. Switzerland, with its prestigious watch Manufactures, has also recognised Italians’ excellence, professionalism and warmth. It has embraced their vision and views, in Geneva and across its green valleys.
Excellence, professionalism, cordiality and profound benevolence are all qualities that distinguish the new “musketeer,” Gian Riccardo Marini, managing director of Rolex Italia SpA and freshly appointed as chief executive officer of Rolex SA. Such distinction and success do honour to him, given the prestige of this elegant (and most discreet) brand.
Having acquired a certain familiarity with Geneva, I am delighted to welcome Gian Riccardo Marini among those who appreciate the city not just for its lake and climate, but for its diligence and industrious nature too.
I’m proud that a compatriot has this opportunity to demonstrate his talent at the head of such a prestigious firm, after leading it with success in such a challenging market as Italy.
Gian Riccardo Marini, a man of great sensitivity, takes Italy one step closer towards reclaiming its international aura, and proof that the country produces not just Machiavellic politicians but also managers with multiple qualities.
“All for one, one for all”, cried the Musketeers. A motto that translates easily into Italian.
