Luigi Di Geso

Luigi Di Geso has been named president and CEO of MAPEI Americas, succeeding Rainer Blair. Di Geso has worked for MAPEI for almost 10 years, most recently as general manager for Mapei, Inc. in Canada, where he managed all aspects of the business, including operations and sales functions.

“We feel that placing Mr. Di Geso at the head of the MAPEI Americas business unit will strengthen its relationship with MAPEI Group, a strategic move during the difficult economic times we are currently experiencing,” said Dr. Giorgio Squinzi, CEO of the MAPEI Group. “We have an especially strong business team in the Americas, and Mr. Di Geso will build on that strength to position MAPEI as an overall leader in the manufacture of materials for construction and the flooring industry in the Americas.”

There will be "no changes in the organizational structure under Mr. Di Geso," MAPEI said.
