Roma have officially unveiled their new CEO following the departure of Umberto Gandini. James Pallotta has named Guido Fienga as the club’s new CEO — here is the full announcement:
AS Roma has named Guido Fienga as its new chief executive officer. Fienga takes up his new role with immediate effect and will report directly to the club’s president Jim Pallotta and Roma’s board of directors. Fienga began working with AS Roma as strategy and media director in 2013 before being appointed chief operating officer last year.
“Guido will lead the club through the next stage of our strategic growth and development,” said AS Roma president Jim Pallotta. “He will be responsible for managing both the day-to-day operations and long-term vision of the club in our goal to become both successful – and sustainable – on and off the pitch.”
As part of the changes in the organisation of the club, Mauro Baldissoni will be promoted to executive vice president of AS Roma.
“The new role will allow Mauro to be more focused on the bigger picture,” explained Pallotta. “In particular, delivering the Stadio della Roma project, which is critical for allowing the club to compete at the highest level on the pitch.”
