Gimav, the Italian Manufacturers’ Association of machinery, accessories and special products for glass processing, appointed Laura Biason its new deputy director.

Working alongside Gimav director Renata Gaffo, Biason will promote member companies by interacting with the main Italian and overseas institutes and strengthen initiatives aimed at increasing the association’s prestige.

“By enlisting Laura Biason, we feel that we have added one of the best experts on the market to our ranks, the best person to build Gimav activities for its member companies,” says Gaffo. “She stands out because of her strategic mindset and track record in delivering services to companies, public and in-house relations, growing the functions and prestige of the organizations where she has worked.”

A computer engineering graduate from the Polytechnic of Turin, Biason most recently held the position of director at Confindustria Messina, to which she was appointed in 2010 after a decade with the organization.
