Silvio Angori, ’03 (EXP-8)
Silvio Angori started as a researcher at Augusta Westland Helicopters and worked as senior researcher at Centro Ricerche Fiat—now Fiat Chrysler Automotive—near Turin. He then joined ArvinMeritor in Detroit, where he held various management roles, becoming general manager and CEO of national branches, transnational operating units, and global divisions.
In 2007, he joined Pininfarina as COO. In 2008, he was co-opted as director of the board and in 2009 was elected to his current position of CEO of Pininfarina Group. During his tenure, he has led Pininfarina through a dramatic turnaround and successfully led a complete relaunch of Pininfarina into a new world of cars, as well as efforts to position the company as the global leader in Italian design.
Angori is a member of several top American associations and is a “compulsive reader.” This passion has led him to deal with the Indice dei Libri del Mese—the Italian equivalent of the New York Review of Books—where he serves as chairman of the board. He has a master’s degree in theoretical physics from La Sapienza University in Rome and an MBA from the University of Chicago Booth School of Business.
