CECE’s new Secretary General takes office

As of today, Riccardo Viaggi starts his role as the new Secretary General of CECE. CECE secured the commitment of Mr. Viaggi to represent the sector towards the EU institutions and manage the association’s Brussels office. Previously, Mr. Viaggi – 36 years old Italian national – has been Secretary General of European Builders Confederation (EBC) since 2009. In this function, he represented European construction micro, small and medium-sized enterprises from the 20
affiliates and partners of EBC in Brussels.
CECE’s President Bernd Holz is confident that Riccardo will help strengthen the visibility and position of construction equipment industry in Europe, thanks to his relevant experience and success in leading an EU trade association in the building sector: “Riccardo has a strong management experience and solid
knowledge of both our industry and the Brussels’ political environment. I am looking forward to working with him.”
The appointment of the new Secretary General was proposed by CECE’s Steering Group and confirmed by the association’s Presidents’ Committee in April 2017. Riccardo Viaggi commented: “I am looking forward to working together with CECE’s members, partner associations and other stakeholders in order to promote the interests of our strategically important industry towards the European Institutions.”
