Roberto Tomasi

Roberto Tomasi was born in Merano (BZ) in 1967. He graduated with honours in Mechanical Engineering from the University of Padua. Since February 2019 he has been Chief Executive Officer of Autostrade per l'Italia.

During his career, he has held important managerial positions in both operations and technical management, consolidating professional achievements in project management, investment management and process improvement. After starting his professional career, he strengthened his education with important experiences, including: an Executive Program at Harvard Business School, in Boston, Massachusetts; an International Executive Program at INSEAD, in France; and a Master in Finance and Project Control at SDA Bocconi in Milan.

His first work experience was in the technical corps of the army, where he gained important professional experience in the military vehicles division at IVECO in Bolzano, which was then heavily involved in development activities. Later, he was hired by FIAT AVIO, in the Heavy Duty division, where he worked in an international context, working in Syria and where he took part in the realisation of an open cycle gas turbine power plant.

In 1996, after a brief period in the service department of the company Nuovo Pignone - GE Group - specialised in the production of textile machinery, he joined the ENEL Group, starting up and carrying out various projects for an experience that would last about 20 years, during which he would hold many managerial positions of increasing responsibility. At the age of 37 he is appointed Senior Vice President in charge of Procurement in the role of Head of Large Contracts at ENEL. At the age of 39 he became Executive Vice President of the ENEL Group's Engineering Business Unit for the design and construction of conventional power plants, managing an organisation of over a thousand resources in an international context. At the beginning of 2015 he was appointed head of the Group's Coal-fired Generation business unit, leaving a few months later to conclude his long experience at ENEL.

In July 2015 Roberto Tomasi was appointed Co-General Manager of Autostrade per l'Italia (ASPI), where he was responsible for the development of new works. He joined the ASPI Board of Directors as a director in April 2016 and always participates as a Director on other boards of ASPI Group subsidiaries. During this period, under his coordination, ASPI opens the Variante di Valico, completes the activities on the Adriatic ridge of A14 and gives impetus to new development projects including the Bologna bypass, network upgrades and Genoa Bypass. A total investment plan worth €14.5 billion is consolidated.

In September 2018, he was appointed General Manager and, in February 2019, took over as CEO of Autostrade per l'Italia, leading the company's renewal process following the Morandi Bridge tragedy. In February 2020, he launched the guidelines for ASPI's new transformation plan, with major interventions aimed at making it possible to carry out - in the three-year period 2020-2023 - over €7.5 billion in investments and maintenance. This represents an increase of over 40% in maintenance expenditure compared to the previous four-year period and a doubling of investment capacity compared to the past.

The new company transformation plan is characterised by a profound change in the management process, which involves hiring more than 1,000 new resources. There are several aspects to this transformation, from the priority given to safety on roads, construction sites and workplaces to the renewed focus on research, development and sustainable mobility for the creation of a "green infrastructure". Significant attention was paid to the new vision of the business approach, which passes through the digitalisation of processes and assets. Finally, Tomasi's vision and future project for the Company is expressed by the renewed ethics, the transparency of its actions and the ability to meet its commitments.
