MILAN, Italy (March 7, 2017) — Pirelli & C. S.p.A. has promoted Paul Hembery to be executive president of its Latin American region consumer business, succeeding Paulo Dal Pino, who was promoted last fall to CEO of Pirelli Industrial.
Mr. Hembery, Pirelli's motorsports director since 1999, will retain that role alongside his new duties, Pirelli said, which include operating units in Argentina, Brazil and Venezuela.
Mr. Hembery has been with Pirelli since 1992, joining the tire maker's United Kingdom unit as an OE quality engineer. He was OE technical director in the U.S. for 21 months during 1998-99 and was CEO of Pirelli's East Asia Pacific business unit from 2008-2010.
The change is effective March 15.
