Frittelli Maritime Group Spa has been selected to participate in an ambitious project: ELITE. The Group has joined a global community that aims to provide companies with access to the capital, skills and networking needed to scale up and to achieve a long-lasting socio-economic impact. ELITE is a company in the London Stock Exchange Group. It was launched in Italy in 2012 and has achieved ambitious results in just a few years, as over 900 leading companies worldwide have joined the program and accepted the challenge of acting as the showcase for the best companies of their own countries, supported by the network of 200 Partners and 200 Investors along their path towards growth. The purposes of the project include offering companies the chance to enter and form part of an ecosystem committed to success on a global scale. A full thirty-three new Italian companies in various sectors took part in this edition, thanks to the partnership with the Intesa Sanpaolo bank, as part of the long-term collaboration with Confindustria, which has been operating with numerous initiatives to support the country’s economy since 2009. The objective of the program is to accelerate development of enterprise through an innovative process of organisational and managerial support based on planning and control models at both strategic and industrial level, to make already merit-worthy companies even more organised, transparent and competitive and more attractive to global investors. In the fifth class of companies participating in the project, ELITE has reached 120 companies with aggregate turnover of Euro 1.9 billion, with an average turnover per company of around Euro 60 million and total resources used numbering 6,425 people.
Participating in this project offers the selected companies a set of tools and services designed to seize new visibility and networking opportunities, thus facilitating their growth and cultural engagement in the various forms of funding available (raising of financial resources), including the public and private capital markets.
“We are pleased to welcome the new group of companies that are joining ELITE today, thanks to the strategic collaboration with Intesa Sanpaolo. We are extremely happy that the number of companies that have joined ELITE through the ELITE Intesa Sanpaolo Lounge continues to increase, with a constantly high quality – comments Luca Peyrano, CEO of ELITE - the thirty-three new companies, coming from thirteen different regions and sixteen different sectors, stand out for their focus on innovation, internationalisation and sustainability. The mission of ELITE has always been to support managerial and strategic development of companies, accompanying them towards sustainable growth and simultaneously including research, skills and technological progress as the means for enhancing growth.” On suggestion of its Chief Financial Officer, Andrea Gubbinelli, and in agreement with Top Management, the Frittelli Maritime Group joined the program with the aim of raising the quality level from an organisational, cultural and managerial standpoint. The company will be represented in the two-year program by the CFO and by the Management Control Officer, Simona Concari, who will seek to convey and share the notions acquired with their colleagues. Frittelli Maritime Group is thus becoming a member of a global network of over 1,295 companies from the forty-three different countries that they represent: this means new contacts, growth potential and business.
