Juventus Set to Name Uneventful New Board of Directors

Exor, the holding that controls Juventus, has announced the five candidates for the new board of directors that will be voted on during the next meeting of the shareholders on January 18th. The list doesn’t comprise Alessandro Del Piero or Giuseppe Marotta, who could eventually be appointed at a later date.

Former CEO Maurizio Arrivabene has been formally ousted, even though he wasn’t at the club during the time under the scrutiny of the various inquiries. Maurizio Scanavino, who was initially named the general manager, will take over the position, Corriere della Sera informs.

A few experts will join him and new president Gianluca Ferrero to face the upcoming legal battles. Fioranna Negri is an accountant and auditor and worked at Satispay, Wikimedia, Guala Closures, Fincantieri, and Autostrade per l’Italia. Diego Pistone has 48-year experience in finance with various companies under the FIAT umbrella, Finde, and Diasorin. Laura Cappiello is a lawyer that specialized in dealing with regulating authorities. He’s a senior counsel for the Orrick firm and assisted Microsoft, Enel, Leonardo, and Fondo Atlante.

With no new executives until the end of the season, Massimiliano Allegri and sporting director Federico Cherubini will helm the sports area. Scanavino will control the funds and sign off on the deals. The first challenge for the new board of directors of Juventus will come on January 20th. The FIGC court will decide whether the Bianconeri and numerous other clubs will be re-tried for the ‘pluvalenze’ for which they were acquitted last year.
