Holding Company Exor Designates New Juventus President

Exor wasted little time indicating the new Juventus president and nominated Gianluca Ferrero for the opening. The appointment will become official in the meeting of the board on January 18th, along with its new members, which will be disclosed 25 days before the assembly, Ansa reports.

Ferrero has been a manager, accountant, and auditor for numerous companies. He worked at Fincantieri, Lavazzara, Biotronik, Praxi, Gedi, Nuo, Fenera, and Lifenet. Moreover, he’s the deputy president of the Piedmont bank. Exor added:

“He has solid experience and the necessary technical expertise, on top of genuine passion for Juventus, that make him the right person for the job.”

John Elkann, the head of the Agnelli family, quickly turned to two trusted executives following the shake-up. He named Giuseppe Scanavino as the new general manager after the mass resignation. He spent time at Fiat in various roles and recently within the GEDI publishing group.

Exor quickly shot down the buzz about other possible candidates for the job, such as club legends Alessandro Del Piero and Giorgio Chiellini, or Alessandro Nasi, opting for a more practical choice. According to La Gazzetta dello Sport, while Andrea Agnelli is gone, CEO Maurizio Arrivabene might maintain his post. Former deputy president Pavel Nedved could be back later on too.

In addition, the new board will mostly feature lawyers and experts in order to properly address the accusations of false accounting and fraud. The club had already begun the process by rewriting previous balance sheets to comply with the requests.
