CEO Rasini leaves as the Euro Media Group restructures its Italian management team
The chief executive and co-founder of the Euro Media Group (EMG) in Italy has stepped down as part of a management restructure at the broadcast facilities and services provider.
After 18 years, Mario Rasini (pictured, centre) leaves the leadership of EMG Italy and is replaced by Claudio Cavallotti (pictured, right) who was most recently sales director at Netco Italia, also part of EMG.
Cavallotti will be supported by chief operating officer Stefano Nicoletti (pictured, left) who joined EMG Italy in September 2020.
Discussing the changes, Rasini said: “It has been an honour and privilege leading EMG Italy through a transformative journey. It is now time to leave room for the new generations.
“I am convinced that EMG Italy companies will continue to grow under the supervision of Claudio Cavallotti, who I believe to be one of the best professionals in this market. He can count on the support of a highly qualified team of managers, with great ability and experience.”
EMG in Italy is represented by four companies: 3Zero2, Netco Sports Italy, Global Production and 3Zero2 Studios.
Cavalotti’s mission as chief executive will be to strengthen EMG’s position further by “drawing on the wealth of talent and expertise that exist across all four companies”.
“The strong foundations for a ‘one-stop-shop’ laid by Mario and the EMG Italy management team is unique in our market and it will be key to embracing the changes ahead and build our full-service offer further”
Cavallotti added: “I thank Mario and EMG for the trust they have placed in me. I am convinced that despite the particular period our industry is going through, we will be able to grow our position within the Italian broadcast services and production scene.
“The strong foundations for a ‘one-stop-shop’ laid by Mario and the EMG Italy management team is unique in our market and it will be key to embracing the changes ahead and build our full-service offer further.”
Cavallotti started his career at Mediaset in 1989 and continued from 1998 at Media Partners. In 2006 he joined Infront, where he managed and developed the TV production team for 10 years. In 2016 he was appointed as sales director of Netco Italia.
Nicoletti joined the EMG Italy management team as COO in September 2020. He is a former content investment and Italy business development senior director at Discovery.
