I am proud to be one of the protagonists of the aggregation into a single production-commercial reality of the most important and historic companies in the Trentino porphyry sector. Men, entrepreneurs but also entire families, inextricably linked to porphyry for two, three, up to four generations and now united towards a common goal, strengthened by the experience and deep knowledge of a material that is fully part of the “gota” of ornamental stones.
At the helm of the foreign commercial area of the CIPT is Gianluca Cristofolini, 49, married with 3 children.
The one with CIPT Italporphyry was an almost spontaneous partnership. CIPT had immediately identified him as an essential figure to be entrusted with strategically crucial tasks within the team both for the start-up phase and for its subsequent business development. On the other hand, Gianluca Cristofolini instinctively embraced the Consortium project, contributing in fact and in a few months to the growth and definitive consecration of CIPT on the market, making the most of the group’s potential to guarantee, through its imprint, the commercial presence of the Consortium and its unmistakable stone products all over the world.
Sales Manager / Italy
The Italian sales network is in the hands of Danilo Ravanelli, who has been in the industry for more than 20 years and with a curriculum built primarily on the work experience of young people in the porphyry quarries. Experience that has allowed Danilo to acquire in-depth knowledge of the material and its characteristics, of the application criteria of the various artifacts and above all of the prerogatives of each individual extraction basin, both it of the group or competition.
Sales Manager / EU
In addition to Gianluca Cristofolini, the foreign sales network enjoys the fundamental contribution of Matteo Paolazzi.
The same takes care of commercial relations mainly with Germany, Spain, Switzerland and Austria. With twenty years of experience in the sale of porphyry, Matteo is a figure known and appreciated also by the competition for his unmistakable aplomb, for his fairness and diplomatic refinement.
Back office / International Sales
The back office of the foreign sales network is entrusted to Livia Fontana, a new entry in the porphyry sector, but immediately able to give an imprint in the performance of duties and at the same time able to convey the right enthusiasm associated with the optimistic vision of work, essential elements for a company structure such as CIPT in the start-up phase.
Administrative management managers
The administrative office is led by Fabio Gilli who relies on the support of Laura Holler. Both are distinguished by pragmatism, seriousness and maximum precision and complete a great team proud of the results achieved so far in the common effort for the enhancement of Trentino porphyry, the stone material that more than many other stones has contributed to making known a piece of Italy around the world. Italporphyry’s philosophy is unique and very simple: search for teamwork, desire to do things and full availability to exchange information for constructive collaboration in daily work and in planning corporate strategies.
