Azimut Yachts names new COO

Azimut Yachts said it named Alberto Morelli chief manufacturing and operations officer as part of an effort to simplify and speed decision-making.

The company said Morelli will be responsible for the technical, production, purchasing and quality control areas; he will report directly to CEO Ferruccio Luppi.

Azimut said Morelli is an engineer who has extensive experience in international automotive companies and has held important manufacturing positions in Italy and abroad.

The company said its production facilities in Fano, Savona, Viareggio and Brasile have been placed under single management and coordination and entrusted to Paolo Sterza.

Sterza will run the non-central production facilities throughout Italy and internationally, sites the company said are thriving.
