Creating a new position, Asolo has appointed Marco Sancandi as European sales manager, effective from Feb. 1. The 56-year-old manager reports directly to the Italian company's chief executive, Luca Zanatta, who will continue to take care of sales in the rest of the world. Sancandi was most recently in charge of operations at Garmont International (see the article in this issue), where he helped to reorganize the business, leading to double-digit growth. Among other stations, he took care of European sales at the former Benetton Sportsystem. He also ran the Italian subsidiary of the Lafuma Group.
