Based in Italy, he will be tasked with increasing the size and reach of Numarine’s dealer network, accelerating sales and enhancing the brand awareness of Numarine internationally.

Numarine said Caviglia has yacht sales and marketing executive experience. He is fluent in Italian, English and French, and also speaks Russian well, and he has a degree in mechanical and aerospace engineering and an MBA from Cornell University.

For the first 13 years of his career, both in Italy and in the United States, Caviglia held roles of increasing responsibility in functions that include engineering, sales, operations and business development at Fiat Auto and Emerson Electric.

Since 2004, he mixed his passion for yachting with his international curriculum, holding positions at Brunswick Corp., Sanlorenzo, Gruppo Baglietto, Vicem and Otam.

At Brunswick, he was director of EMEA, and was strategy and business development director for Brunswick’s European group. In that role he was responsible for the strategy and business development function of the EMEA division of the biggest nautical company in the world, producer of boats and marine engines.

He worked with brands that include Sea Ray, Hatteras, Sealine, Boston Whaler, Mercury and Mercruiser. He was responsible for mergers and acquisitions, development of new markets, new products, new product distribution, market study execution and marketing research.

At Sanlorenzo, he was sales director for the fiberglass yacht range from 62 to 108 feet. At Gruppo Baglietto he was group sales manager, with sales responsibility for the brands Baglietto and Cantieri di Pisa.

As European sales manager at Vicem Yachts, he helped to establish the brand’s presence and increase sales in Europe. In his last assignment in OTAM as sales and marketing director, he strengthened its distribution and brand image, resulting in improved sales and future opportunities.
