After a brilliant university career having graduated in Electronic Engineering and then specialised in Bio-Engineering, for 3 years Bianchi worked at Andersen Consulting (now Accenture) where he learned the huge importance of corporate organisation and structure as well as leadership skills.
In 2001, when its turnover was just € 38 million, Bianchi was taken on at Fosber as Commercial Director, bringing the skills and dynamism which were not typical of the corrugated machine manufacturing industry. Soon he became the focal point of the company and was appointed as Operations Director in 2006 and then General Manager in 2010.
In 2015 he was appointed as Managing Director, leading to what was then a record year for the Fosber Group in 2016 with a turnover exceeding € 144 million.
In June 2017 Mr. Bianchi – aged just 45 – was appointed as President and Managing Director of the Fosber Group by the Board of Directors.
As Head Quarters of the Fosber Group located in Lucca since 1978, Fosber Italy is the centre from which the company's strategy, design, innovation and production is focused.
Its location in Lucca has and continues to be a significant factor in the company's success thanks to the intensive presence and activity in this region of mechanical and engineering industrial services that specialise in servicing the paper industry. This ensures there is always a deep local pool of highly technically qualified and specialised personnel that can be drawn on whenever required.
