Diomedi worked for the Ferretti Group from 2001 to 2014. He helped develop new sales networks and open yacht dealerships in emerging markets for the Italian yacht builder.

Starting in 2001, Diomedi served as the Ferretti Group’s Asia Pacific sales manager in Singapore, starting dealerships in Hong Kong, China, India, Australia, New Zealand, Thailand and Malaysia. In 2005 he opened the Ferretti Group office in Shanghai.
