Raimondi Cranes appoints Domenico Ciano as CEO
Highly experienced executive to mastermind aggressive global growth strategy
Raimondi Cranes, heritage manufacturer of tower and luffing cranes, has appointed Eng. Domenico Ciano to the role of CEO. Eng. Ciano will succeed Ahmed Alkhoshaibi, who served as Raimondi’s CEO since 2009.
“As Raimondi’s CEO for more than a decade, I am pleased to see our succession planning process activated. I am confident and proud that Raimondi will have a leader that both values its heritage and that will further invigorate the significant upward trajectory we have experienced these past years,” said Alkhoshaibi, remarking on Eng. Ciano’s appointment.
With over 17 years of experience in the crane industry, Eng. Ciano joined Raimondi Cranes in October 2014 as the company’s technical director. He was soon promoted to chief operations officer, where he was instrumental in developing Raimondi’s R&D capabilities and has been responsible for delivering a number of extremely popular products to the global market.
Eng. Ciano’s appointment comes during a period of significant growth for Raimondi, which is steadily increasing its market share and pushing into new markets around the world, particularly in Europe, the Middle East, Africa and North America. He will also mastermind the roll-out of a number of new cranes during 2019.
“Having joined Raimondi Cranes five years ago, I was originally brought on to catalyse the company’s R&D segment, leading with intelligently-designed cranes and subsequently accessories. My mission at that time was heavily skewed to design engineering, and bringing products to market that would both elevate the company’s reputation and re-position Raimondi as a global leader in the tower and luffing crane segments,” said Eng. Ciano.
“Since 2014, Raimondi has launched a number of new products and a full accessories range, with extremely warm market reception. Every Raimondi product launch has been welcomed by strong sales and repeat purchasing; itself an indication of client satisfaction and acknowledgement of our technical advancements and product fit-for purpose,” Eng. Ciano continued.
