Riccardo Viaggi (36) has been chosen as the new secretary general of the Committee for European Construction Equipment (CECE).

With over 1,000 construction equipment manufacturers represented by CECE through national trade associations in 13 European countries, Viaggi will assume responsibility for representing them to EU institutions as well as managing the association’s Brussels office.

Bernd Holz, president of CECE, said that Viaggi would help to strengthen the visibility and position of the construction equipment industry in Europe, thanks to his relevant experience and success in leading an EU trade association in the building sector – the European Builders Confederation (EBC).

“Riccardo has a strong management experience and solid knowledge of both our industry and Brussels’ political environment,” said Holz.

Viaggi became secretary general of the EBC in 2009, during which time he represented European construction micro, small and medium-sized enterprises from the 20 affiliates and partners of EBC in Brussels.

Viaggi said, “I am looking forward to working together with CECE’s members, partner associations and other stakeholders in order to promote the interests of our strategically important industry towards the European Institutions.”

He will be replacing Sigrid de Vries, who stepped down as secretary general at the start of the year.
