SIA-SSB has launched a new organisational structure, which is oriented towards the market and designed to achieve the objectives of its 2011-2013 business plan. The new structure will permit a greater focus on the individual business segments and an improvement in the efficiency of the processes used to deliver the services to customers.
The organisation is split into four business divisions – financial institutions, corporate and public administration (PA), central institutions and network services – with responsibility for covering and developing the specific customer segments; an operations division, to support and distribute the services; and seven staff divisions.
The financial institutions and the corporate and PA divisions report directly to chief executive officer (CEO) Massimo Arrighetti, while the central institutions and network services divisions are under the direct control of managing director Gian Bruno Mazzi.
- The financial institutions division, entrusted to Nicola Cordone, has the task of bringing together and strengthening the activities related to large bank groups and to small to medium-size banks, both in Italy and abroad, through the definition of services tailored to the specific requirements of the individual customer segments.
- The corporate and PA division, led by Carlo Maiocchi, has the aim of developing the corporate sector and the central and local PA sector.
- The central institutions division, managed by Mario De Lorenzo, has the role of consolidating the offering aimed at central banks and central institutions (ABI, EBA, MTS, Montetitoli, etc), in the domestic and international markets.
- The network services division, under the responsibility of Andrea Galeazzi, has the objective of developing, providing and promoting network services for all customers inside and outside Italy.
