Mondadori Libri, the new company wholly – owned by Arnoldo Mondadori Editore, announced  the following appointments: Ernesto Mauri chairman; Enrico Selva Coddè, Gian Arturo Ferrari, Antonio Porro and Oddone Pozzi directors. Reporting to the Group’s CEO Ernesto Mauri, Enrico Selva Coddè is appointed Managing Director of Mondadori Libri for the Trade area and Antonio Porro is confirmed Managing Director of the Educational area.

 

Gian Arturo Ferrari, Deputy Chairman of Mondadori Libri, will work in co-operation with Enrico Selva, Managing Director of the Trade area, for the implementation and publication of the publishing programmes. Ernesto Mauri, CEO of Mondadori Group, said:

 

“This configuration enables a more functional structure aiming at potentially further developing a strategically key business for us as we hold a leadership position with a 26% market share in the Trade area and a 13% market share in the Educational area. The scenario of the publishing market is still declining and this means that we need to increasingly keep our focus on innovation and management efficiency, while streamlining processes with a view to increasing profitability in a strategically key sector for our company . The new organization, which I am proud of also for the excellence of its professional competencies, will enable the management to use all leverages to achieve the projected results”.
