The newly appointed Chairman of Cattolica Assicurazioni, Davide Croff, stated: “I would like to thank the Shareholders for the trust they have placed in the Board that was appointed today. My personal commitment, and I am sure also that of all the Directors, will be to best honour the important task that has been assigned to us. I also want to extend my thanks to those who have so far contributed to managing the company by giving us the honour and the burden of leading a company that is an important piece in our Country’s insurance scenario and a cultural heritage of its territory.
As a Company, and in particular as a Board, a very challenging future awaits us, but certainly full of opportunities for all stakeholders (shareholders, management and employees, customers, agency network, territory, institutions).
In this regard, I see three main references in our acting as Board: 1) The governance of the Company: we will continue along the lines of the changes identified and started, necessary to project Cattolica into the future, without losing its founding values; 2) The future positioning of Cattolica in the light of market developments, with a view to creating value for all stakeholders; 3) sustainability: I believe it is right to identify and implement a path that allows Cattolica to make an original and concrete contribution to a very important issue, especially in consideration of the nature of the services that the Company is called upon to offer to individuals and to its community”.
