Duplomatic MS has appointed Paolo Leutenegger as General Manager. The appointment is part of a strategy to face the industrial and technological challenges ahead of the international scene, focusing on the strengthening of the management within the Duplomatic Group.
While consolidating its group structure through a diversified offer of product and systems solutions for both the industrial and mobile markets, Duplomatic also develops high-technology turnkey solutions, such as the complete system for moving the roof of the United Arab Emirates pavilion at Expo 2020, a project designed by architect Santiago Calatrava.
Paolo Leutenegger’s international experience and his focus on innovation and technology make him the right person for the position of General Manager. He has built his professional career on his education as Electronic Engineer graduated from Polytechnic of Milan, making significant contributions in various scientific and industrial fields, such as the research projects followed at the Max Planck Institut and KETEK GmbH in Munich and in the aerospace sector at Thales Alenia Space, as well as the development of innovative and high-tech products within the Liebherr industrial group in Germany.
Leutenegger has been with Duplomatic MS since 2018, where he held the position of Group R&D Director — that he will continue to cover in the future — and of Senior Project Manager UAE Pavilion for Expo 2020 in Duplomatic Middle East.
He leads the Mechatronics Business Unit and the Turnkey Projects Business Unit, dedicated respectively to electronic equipment and turnkey projects.
“Innovation means creating — starting from an idea or concept — products and solutions capable of combining technical characteristics and economic sustainability,” Leutenegger said. “These proposals must respond to specific customer needs, offering them new market opportunities or improvement of their production processes.”
