As part of a larger management restructuring process at the Italian furniture company, Natuzzi has hired Maria Rosaria Bonifacio to lead its human resources department as chief HR & organization officer.
Bonifacio's new role will involve the oversight and development of the company's international human resources programs.
“I am particularly enthusiastic about having the opportunity to join an Italian multinational group [such] as the Natuzzi Group, [which] has been the ambassador of 'made-in-Italy' in the world for decades,” said Bonifacio. “The training and professional growth of talent within the Group represents a strategic and fundamental component...in our production. One of my primary goals will be the development of a corporate culture that makes people’s appreciation a cornerstone for our own business."
Previously, Bonfacio worked for Ericsson as global director for outsourcing processes. She joined the company in 2001 as chief HR officer for South-East Europe, and was promoted to chief HR officer for the Business Unit Global Services in 2008.
