Olimpia Splendid Names Diego Stefani Director of Sales and Business Development for North America
Olimpia Splendid S.p.A., a family owned HVAC manufacturing company established in 1956 in Brescia, Italy, has appointed Diego Stefani as the Director of Sales and Business Development for North America. In this new role, Stefani is responsible for bringing the unique Olimpia Splendid Italian-engineered and manufactured heating and air conditioning products to the US and Canadian markets. Stefani will be focused on building the Olimpia Splendid brand name, a market leader in Europe but unknown in North America. Specifically, Stefani will be setting up the Olimpia Splendid USA sales office in the Dallas, Texas area, establishing the distribution network and developing strategic growth plans to introduce a product line that has never been sold in the North American market until now.
Stefani, with a bachelor’s degree in Business Economics, comes to Olimpia Splendid with 25 years of HVAC industry experience in international and U.S. domestic business development, sales and marketing as well as sales management on both the manufacturer and distribution sides of the business. Having worked for The Whalen Company, Daikin/Goodman Manufacturing, CDI, York International and Johnson Controls, Stefani brings his expertise in the sales of HVAC systems (residential/commercial/applied) and a proven track record of taking new products to market, marketing leadership, and channel development strategies, as a key member of the Olimpia Splendid USA Management Team.
Stefani commented “I am very excited about this entrepreneurial career opportunity to work for a company like Olimpia Splendid, an industry leader with a rich history in Europe manufacturing air conditioners, fan coils and heat pumps in the Italian tradition of commitment to innovative design and superior quality. Our Made in Italy products are not currently available in American and Canadian markets, which makes them a very appealing opportunity for potential distribution partners to differentiate themselves from their competition. Being that I was born in Italy makes this opportunity even more meaningful as it hits close to home. I am very proud to represent Olimpia Splendid and I am looking forward to being part of what the future holds, as it becomes an industry leader in North America with tremendous growth opportunities.”
“Olimpia Splendid has a growth strategy that includes significant international expansion,” said Olimpia Splendid USA President, Marco Saccone. “In fact, in the past 5 years we have opened sales offices in France, Spain, Brazil, China and now in the United States. We could have not asked for a better, more qualified professional than Diego Stefani to head up our sales efforts in North America. Not only does he bring a wealth of HVAC industry experience, but also being that he is Italian, he understands what will be required for an Italian company to become a market leader in the largest HVAC market in the world.
