Eugenio Eger is the new Favini CEO, a company historically present in the paper market and world leader in the casting release business. Born in 1968, Eger joined the company in 2002, holding the position of CFO and General Manager, after previously gaining important professional experience at both Benetton Group and KPMG.
“I am proud to accept this challenge. Over the years Favini has proven capable of successfully interpreting the structural changes occurring in its market, diversifying geographically and constantly investing in research and development, to offer its customers’ really revolutionary products and solutions. This has been endorsed by our results: in 2014, we closed with a positive growth (+17%), largely due to the contribution of our casting release division, whose products are used in the production of eco-leather for the fashion and luxury industry” said Eugenio Eger. “We will continue to invest in export markets, which are the most appealing for us: approx. 70% of our turnover is generated in non-European countries.
The graphic specialties – for which Favini is renowned – remain as the feather in its cap; in particular, CRUSH and the other eco-friendly products that use agro-industrial residues within their production, continue to gain strength in market approval since their launch”.
