Paolo Cassinari is the new Managing Director of Oftalmica Galileo Italia

On November 15, Paolo Cassinari was handed the reins of Oftalmica Galileo Italia. The MD, who has full decision-making powers, is to stay on as Nikon Business Unit Director – a position he has held since July 2017 – and will have the task of drawing up a common strategy aimed at accelerating the growth of Nikon Lenswear and, at the same time, consolidating Galileo’s value proposition. The two companies have been strengthened so that they can support their optician partners in seizing new business opportunities in a comprehensive approach that will include innovation, business proposals and customer services.
Cassinari joined the Essilor Group in 2014 as Country Key Account Manager, and has contributed to the successful start and consolidation of various key contracts for the Group.
