SCARPA ANNOUNCEMENT: MARCO DE GASPERI AS NEW BRAND MANAGER TO PICKS UP SPEED IN TRAIL RUNNING
Marco De Gasperi’s CV speaks for itself: we could mention his six Mountain Running World Champion titles, a European Champion medal, eleven World Cups and two European Skyrunning wins, not forgetting his setting of records which had not been broken for more than twenty years.
De Gasperi will bring to his new role an array of skills and relationships accumulated in the course of many years travelling and competing all over the world: know‐how that the new Category Manager will place at the disposal of the Veneto brand in order to consolidate and increase its presence in the Trail Running world. Various new initiatives are planned in terms of sponsorship for events and athletes, including a determination to become increasingly involved in the Skyrunner World Series and other international competitions.
“We’re very proud to welcome Marco into our team. The enthusiasm he brings to this challenge and his boundless passion for the mountains will be an exceptional motivation for the Trail Running team and for the firm as a whole“, says Sandro Parisotto, President of SCARPA. “In recent years the world of trail running has grown enormously“, comments Diego Bolzonello, CEO of the Asolo firm. “The market expects great things of us, and Marco’s arrival is an essential starting point for the investment we plan to make in this discipline in the coming years.”
