Ducati CEO, Federico Minoli to leave the company soon

Ducati CEO, Federico Minoli (second from right) will leave the company on the 21st of this month...

Federico Minoli, CEO at Ducati, and the man responsible for bringing Ducati back on track, is all set to leave the Bologna-based company. Minoli says that ‘Ducati shareholders want someone who’s close to them’ to take charge, which is why he will have to move on. He will be leaving the company on Monday, the 21st of this month.

Ducati shareholders wanting Minoli replaced by someone else seems very weird, because Ducati have made significant advances under his brilliant leadership. Ducati produced a range of new bikes – the 1098, the Hypermotard, the Desmosedici RR, the Multistrada 1100 and the Sport Classic series – under Minoli’s direction, they’ve been doing well in MotoGP and World Superbikes, and things have never looked better for the company.

Minoli speaks about leaving Ducati

Federico Minoli was born in Gallarate, Italy, and apart from being a brilliant Business Head, he’s also an ardent motorcycle enthusiast – his blog was quite popular with Ducati fans. We’re sure he’ll be missed at Ducati, and the man who takes his place will certainly have a very tough act to follow. We wish Federico all the very best in whatever he chooses to do.

Alan Cathcart interviewed Minoli for Motorcyclist magazine some time ago.
