Project 2000 strengthens team
Project 2000 is an Italian based company which manufactures steps, TV bracket mounts and adjustable height bed solutions and was acquired last year by the American group Lippert Components best known for slide outs, has employed Ursula Scalia in the role of Head of Sales and Marketing, and Alessio Tintorini as Head of Technical.
Ursula Scalia comes in with a wealth of experience in the RV sector, thanks to a decade long background during which she expanded and consolidated her role. She is well acquainted with the dynamics of multinationals, and is capable of offering the utmost coordination between a business entity such as Project 2000 and a company of much larger proportions like Lippert Components. Among other things, Ms. Scalia spent four years at Webasto as a key account manager for major OEM customers, and was a business strategy manager for markets in France, the U.K., Italy and Spain. “I intend to offer our customers continued support, effectively meeting their needs and developing new products, especially based on their suggestions, an area in which Project 2000 is certainly second to none,” states the company’s new sales manager. Ursula Scalia will coordinate a work group that includes two technical area managers, Gianluca Papaleo and Lucia Caponi.
The technical division is also being overhauled, with Alessio Tintorini appointed as the new technical manager, alongside Valerio Atzeni and Matteo Faggi. Tintorini has fifteen years’ experience in the role of technical manager, as well as overseeing research.
“Project 2000 is already a success story, but we can do more to improve,” says Davide Nardini, founder and General Manager of Project 2000, “which is why we need to develop a mid to long term growth strategy, offering a full range of valid products that evolve technically and take into account the needs of a changing market. But we also want to stay close to our customer base, in order to best interpret their requests according to their specific needs. In this context, the appointment of these two new professionals is a fundamental move.”
