Marco Roma is now general manager of MAPEI Inc., the Canadian subsidiary of the global chemical products manufacturer.

Roma will join the MAPEI Americas leadership team and will report directly to MAPEI Americas president and CEO, Luigi Di Geso.

Roma has worked for Mapei S.p.A. since April 2014, as a corporate area manager and then interim general manager for MAPEI’s holdings in France, Belgium and the Netherlands. Before coming to MAPEI, Roma worked for Materis Group, holding various executive positions in Italy, Asia-Pacific and Western Europe.

“We are looking forward to Marco’s support in maintaining and building an even stronger team in Canada as we work to continuously grow our business in this important North American market, where MAPEI started their globalization efforts,” Di Geso said.

Roma said, "I’m particularly excited to join MAPEI Inc., as the opening of the Canadian subsidiary in 1978 was the very first step of the successful internationalization strategy implemented by MAPEI Group over the past four decades. Our goals and strategies to further develop our presence in all existing and new markets will ensure that Canada continues to play an important role for MAPEI in the years to come.”
