Congratulations Mr Benjamin PAGANELLI !

Appointed just over a year ago to the position of Director of Operations and Commercial Director of REP Italiana, Mr Benjamin PAGANELLI will take over the management of our 2 Italian subsidiaries, REP Italiana and RPM, from April 2024. . 

Creating synergy between teams

REP Italiana and RPM have joined forces to create a sales partnership in Italy, and pool their resources to provide a full range of services and strengthen their after-sales business.


New perspectives for all

The aim is to build a shared history, drawing on the historical expertise of both entities.

All REP and RPM teams have been retained, and will participate in the expansion of activities without losing any of their know-how.

Ms Monica BONOMETTI and Mr Marco INVERARDI, with over 17 and 20 years' experience at RPM respectively, will remain at the heart of the team, both driving forces alongside Benjamin PAGANELLI.
