Anas has been in the prorogatio regime for more than three months, after the conclusion of the mandate of the top management, namely the managing director Massimo Simonini and the chairman Claudio Andrea Gemme, with the approval of the financial statements at the end of April. However, after months of waiting, and after the appointment of Luigi Ferraris as CEO of FS (which controls Anas), the successor who will have to lead the work to improve the road infrastructure has not yet been chosen. Politics is intervening heavily on the issue, and there are those who ask that it clear the way to make room for a real ‘manager’ who is not the result of a compromise between parties.
“In the last few hours, around Anas, and the choice of his new leaders, the now proverbial internal dispute between Luigi Di Maio and Giuseppe Conte has re-emerged.. Last Thursday the rodeo began around the dreaded appointment of Ugo de Carolis as the new CEO of Anas. The Foreign Minister knew that to make the proposal made by the head of the FS, Luigi Ferraris fragile, there was the matter of the Morandi bridge, that allegedly unbecoming proximity of the supposed new CEO of Anas with the Benetton family. Beyond the pretext found, the veto had come because Ferraris had shared very little, with the heads of the various parties, the political balance in the choice of presidencies of other subsidiaries of the group. Now Di Maio supports Ugo Dibennardo. The engineer from Catania, formerly the right hand of the former CEO of Anas Pietro Ciucci, has been able to weave good relationships with everyone in the undergrowth of the subsidiaries. With Luca Zaia’s leaguers because of his position at the top of the Venetian motorway concessions, but also with Sicilian grillini by virtue of his past driving Anas on the island. And it is also welcome in various areas of the Democratic Party. Conte’s preference would go to a third name, that of Massimiliano Bianco. Who, having recently resigned from the leadership of the multiutility Iren, in addition to having a more financial profile than Dibennardo, would also have a more center-left connotation“, Reads the Newspaper.
The same newspaper, directed by Giuliano Ferrara, however, hopes that a real, high-profile manager will be chosen. The reason? “The policy that only thinks of perpetuating internal supply chains in companies that are not brilliantly managed has already failed“.
