Bicycle manufacturer Colnago has announced that Nicola Rosin has been appointed CEO of Colnago Ernesto & C. S.r.l. and the associated company, Colnago America.
Rosin joined Colnago as its strategic advisor in February this year and will continue in this role with Colnago’s parent company in Abu Dhabi, despite his new appointment.
Rosin previously worked at Selle Royal Group as General Manager and Board Member, overseeing businesses such as fi’zi:k, Brooks, Crankbrothers, PEdALED, and Selle Royal. Rosin is also part of the entrepreneurial group that acquired the cycling brand Eroica in 2014.
Rosin said: “It feels like I’ve been working my entire career to have a chance to lead a brand and business as significant as Colnago. Like anyone in cycling, I have always respected the brand that Ernesto has built and feel fortunate to take on this leadership role. I would love to thank Mrs. Melissa Moncada for advocating to bring me on as the leader of Colnago. I must also say that Ernesto Colnago has supported me and has given me excellent advice as I stepped into the company that he quite literally built with his own hands.”
Melissa Moncada, Vice Chairman of Colnago Abu Dhabi, said: “With the leadership and knowledge of our new CEO, Nicola Rosin, Colnago will have a promising future that will be characterized by enhancing the legacy of Ernesto Colnago hand in hand with all the excellent human and professional members of our company.”
Ernesto Colnago, Founder, said: “I have spent my entire working life building the Colnago brand and business and I feel entirely confident that I am handing it over to the best leader possible. After spending months really getting to know Nicola, I am certain that, under his vision, Colnago will grow to higher heights than ever before.”
