Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Savino Del Bene SpA
In 2016, he was presented with the order of the Cavaliere del Lavoro (Knight of Labor). He began his career in the company at the age of 16, in 1957. This started a long ascent in his career that led him, in 1979, to become Sole Director, after taking over the company shares together with four colleagues. Thus, he began a journey of transforming the company from a local business to a major global logistics operator. Always very involved in its operations, he believes that doing business is both an ethical and social responsibility.
The career of Paolo Nocentini, class of 1941, within Savino Del Bene has been unstoppable: from switchboard operator to Chairman and CEO in the span of 22 years. In his lifetime of work, he has transformed a regional shipping company into a global player capable of competing with the biggest international giants.
How did Nocentini succeed in this quest to position Savino Del Bene as the number one Italian company in the industry? Daily commitment, passion for his work, and belief in the individual’s ability to pursue and achieve important results. Nocentini has achieved what he set out to do: in his unique career, he has established a company that reflects his values.
One of the reasons behind his success is that he has always put the individual, the human being, at the center of every activity. He opts for and creates a form of management where individuality is always highly valued. Attention to and investment in human capital is one of the keys to success. In the end, it is people who, with their commitment, dedication, and responsibility, build the future of Savino Del Bene day after day.
Nocentini is an enlightened entrepreneur, a cultural heir to the great Florentines of times past. In his office, he displays a motto from the fourteenth century that clearly defines his drive and his moral strength: “No enterprise, however small it may be, can have a beginning or an end without these three things: that is, without knowledge, without power, without willing passion” (anonymous Florentine from 1300).
Executive Vice President of Savino Del Bene SpA and Chairman of Savino Del Bene USA
At 19, he began his journey in the company by following the example of his father, Paolo Nocentini. He embarked on a long journey of professional growth that led him to develop a comprehensive understanding of the industry and, over the years, he performed various roles within the multinational company, specializing in the American market, a strategic area for Savino Del Bene. Driven by lofty ideals and firm principles, he personally participated in the globalization of the company.
Born in 1965, Fabio Nocentini began his career at Savino Del Bene as an operator in international shipping at various levels for major world routes. He specialized in the US market after working during the summers as a porter in the warehouse in Florence. This career path allowed him to develop an overall vision that led him, over the years, to hold increasingly important roles, including at the commercial level.
In 1993, he became head of the sales department for Italy and the US, and after fourteen years, in 2007, he was appointed Chief Financial Officer. His career did not stop there, however, and in 2012, he was first promoted to Chief Operating Officer and then to Executive Vice President in 2015, as well as Chairman of Savino Del Bene USA from 2019.
Having followed in his father’s footsteps, he absorbed his ethics, culture, knowledge, and professionalism. He has been sharing, participating in, and shaping the exponential growth of Savino Del Bene worldwide together with the company’s chairman and management. Fabio represents the continuity of Savino Del Bene’s “philosophy” in the future.
