Luigi Lubrano’s account (Managing Director) - Magneti Marelli China.
What’s the advantage of being part of an international group such as Magneti Marelli?
“The big advantage is linked to the high technology image that this company has in the automotive industry. The challenges we face in the different markets give us an important visibility, and our customers recognise Magneti Marelli’s expertise, technical know-how, and innovative approach to the automotive market”.
What promped you to change country and career?
“I accepted this offer to transfer abroad for two main reasons: first of all, for the opportunity to reconfigure my role within the organisation. Then, to make a switch from the R&D sector, to which I had dedicated my entire career covering various roles, to P&L management, which can give me the opportunity to take on new challenges”.
What positive and negative challenges did you face?
“All challenges are an opportunity to assess an individual's ability to find solutions. If I look back to the last two years, I can confirm that I was able to handle the initial difficulty of integrating my management style with the Chinese culture and with the OEM approach, which are completely different from the European and American approach. The positive experience is connected to the great opportunities that the Chinese market is offering a company such as Magneti Marelli, in terms of business”.
Does this kind of opportunity contribute to Magneti Marelli’s growth?
“In general, the transfer to another country gives you the opportunity to enhance your multicultural approach and management skills. These types of characteristics are increasingly important in the global market.
Managers who are able to seize these opportunities can help prepare and guide Magneti Marelli towards new challenges”.
