Ms Todini has a long history of involvement with FIEC. She has served as a vice president since 2004, first chairing an ad hoc working group on Central & Eastern European Countries, and then the association's Trans European Transport Network (TEN-T) ad hoc group.
More recently she has served as co-president of FIEC's Economic and Legal Commission in charge of its Infrastructure working groups.
Ms Todini is chair of Italian contractor Todini Costruzioni Generali, a company established by her father, Franco Todini in 1965.
She is also president of the Comitatio Leonardo, an Italian national quality committee, vice president of the Italian Ministry of Economic Development's Italian Industry Promotion Agency (IPI) and co-chair of the Italian-Russian dialogue group.
She is the first woman to serve as FIEC's president in the association's 104 year history.
