With regret we report the death of Eng. Domenico Ciano, former chief executive officer at tower crane manufacturer Raimondi in Italy.

Ciano, an engineer, joined Raimondi in 2014 as technical director, was soon appointed chief operations officer and then was appointed CEO in May 2019. As COO he was instrumental in developing Raimondi’s research and development capabilities and was responsible for delivering several popular products to the global market, the company said.

On Ciano’s appointment, outgoing CEO, Ahmed Alkhoshaibi, said, “I am confident and proud that Raimondi will have a leader that both values its heritage and that will further invigorate the significant upward trajectory we have experienced these past years. The wealth of in-house experience, together with his innovative approach to the crane industry, are only two of the reasons that the board of directors advocated for his appointment. I look forward to seeing Eng. Ciano’s passion, loyalty and drive rewarded through his position as our new chief executive.”

Two years later, in July 2021, Domenico Ciano got board approval to take a one year sabbatical from the company. “Raimondi’s Board of Directors reiterated their strong support of Eng. Ciano’s decision to embark on the one year sabbatical, lauding his commitment to his personal goals of health and wellness,” the company said.

ICST offers its condolences to Domenico Ciano’s wife and family.
