“Never stop pedalling”


t is with great sadness that the Mapei Group announces the passing of its President, Giorgio Squinzi, who died in Milan on the evening of 2nd


I October.


Born in 1943, with a degree in Industrial Chemistry, Giorgio Squinzi (a second- generation businessman) became the Sole Administrator of Mapei in 1984 after the death of his father, Rodolfo, who founded the company in 1937. Under his leadership, the company grew over the years to become one of the world’s leading players in chemical products for the building industry, and currently operates in 56 countries through 89 subsidiaries. The Mapei Group, which employs over 10,500 staff, manufactures across five continents through 83 factories in 36 countries. This internationalisation process began long ago; the Group’s first foreign offices opened in Canada back in 1978. Not only did he devote his life to his family


and company, his innovative vision and social work made an important contribution to business associations, the world of sport, and the wider community in his home city and the rest of the world. In 1996 he was awarded the ‘Ambrogino


d’oro” (one of the city’s highest awards) by the Mayor of Milan for his contribution to the city in the realms of both business and sport, and in 1998 he was knighted for his services to industry. In 2013 the President of the Italian Republic, Giorgio Napolitano, bestowed upon him the honour of being made a Grand Officer of the “Order of Merit of the Italian People”. Giorgio Squinzi held important posts in


both Italian and international business associations. He was President of the Italian Federation of Chemical Industries from 1997- 2003 and then again from 2005-2011. He was also the leader of CEFIC, the European Council of Chemical Industries, which represents 29,000 companies in this sector, for a two-year period (2010-2012). He was the President of the Italian Industrial Federation from May 2012- May 2016. Giorgio Squinzi’s motto was “Never stop pedalling”, epitomising his approach to work and life. The expression actually comes from cycling, a passion for which he inherited from his father, Rodolfo. This love of cycling led


Giorgio Squinzi to sponsor the Mapei professional cycling team that won a total of 654 races from 1993-2002, reaching the very top of all the different international rankings. Mapei’s links to cycling go way back and still continue today through its partnership with the UCI (International Cycling Union): Mapei is the Main Sponsor of the Road World Championships. Giorgio Squinzi’s love of sport also extended to football. He took over Sassuolo Calcio in 2002, and in just a few years the club was promoted from Serie C2 to Serie A and is now firmly established among the leading clubs in the country’s top division. Opera was another of Giorgio Squinzi’s


great passions. He always attended the first night at La Scala in Milan and was a great opera fan. He was a member of the Opera House’s Board of Directors from 2016 and Mapei has been a Permanent Founding Member since 2008. His expertise, precision and passion will


now be taken up by his children, Veronica and Marco, who were appointed as Chief Executive Officers in July 2019. They will lead the group along the path


first trodden with such far-sighted vision by Rodolfo and then Giorgio Squinzi.
