Deputy CEO in charge of brand & product strategy, Bénéteau

Gianguido Girotti

In 2015, when he was barely in his forties, the Italian-born Gianguido Girotti, who qualified from the School of Naval Architecture in Southampton, joined the Beneteau brand as Sailing Yacht Product Marketing Manager.

In 2017, he went on to become the Marketing Manager for the Sailing Yacht and Motorboat division. With a faultless career managing projects for Hallberg Rassy and Swan, with German Frers, and then with the Grand Soleil and Dufour brands at the highly-regarded Cantiere del Pardo boatyard, he has a clear vision of the changes sweeping through the boating industry.

Gianguido Girotti then became Beneteau’s General Manager.
