The issue of succession at Minale Tattersfield & Partners, following the tragic death of founder and chairman Marcello Minale in January, has been resolved with the elevation of his son to managing director.
Marcello Minale (jnr) becomes managing director, replacing Alex Maranzano, who steps up to the role of chairman, the position that Minale (snr) previously held.
Minale senior was murdered in January in an altercation with a man on one of his many rowing trips (DW 8 January).
Minale (jnr) has worked at MinTat for some 15 years and was partner in charge of overseas development, with particular focus on the consultancy’s Italian practice. His assumption of the lead role will surprise few in the industry.
Maranzano says that MinTat’s clients have been responding positively to Minale (jnr), which has helped persuade him to take the job.
Minale (snr) had been working with Maranzano on the succession issue for a couple of years.
The plan had been for Maranzano to take over as chairman and for a new managing director to have been brought on board.
