FRANCESCO CASILLO - CHAIRMAN AND CHIEF EXECUTIVE OFFICER OF MOLINO CASILLO S.P.A.

Chairman and CEO of Molino Casillo Spa and Casillo Commodities Italia spa, the group’s largest operating companies. Born in Corato on 27 April 1966 he began to support his father Vincenzo in managing the family businesses even before reaching adulthood. His father's teachings, together with an MBA from Spegea in Bari in 1986, allowed him to take on responsible corporate roles from a very young age. In the early nineties he founded the cereal trading company, now the leading Italian company in the field and among the main ones in Europe, which has allowed satisfactory synergies to be achieved with the family’s historic milling business. Since the 2000s, particularly in view of his father’s poor health, he has guided the strategic decisions made by the company which have turned into a large food company and a benchmark for the nation. Married to Isabella since 1995, he is father to Vincenzo and Francesca. He has always been a sport-lover. He has practised football, swimming and is currently a passionate cyclist. The sporting values of sacrifice, suffering, perseverance, rigour, resilience, loyalty, team play, respect for the opponent, generosity and a sense of challenge are also the basis of his work.
