After the company’s founder, Rodolfo, passed away in 1984, his son, Mr. Giorgio Squinzi, a graduate in industrial chemistry, took control of Mapei; his wife, Adriana Spazzoli, began working alongside him in the marketing department. Their children, Marco and Veronica, then joined the company in the latter half of the 1990s, marking an important new beginning in the company’s history as it increasingly focused on certain key sectors of the Group’s operations: research & development and internationalisation.
After Mr. Squinzi and Ms. Spazzoli passed away in 2019, their children, Marco and Veronica, took over the company as joint Corporate CEOs.
The board of directors is now composed of Marco Squinzi, Veronica Squinzi and Simona Giorgetta with the lawyer, Laura Squinzi, chairing the board.
Over the years Mapei has strengthened its position as a leading multinational in the manufacture of mortars, adhesives, sealing and waterproofing agents, additives for concrete and other special products for the building industry. Mapei continues to be a family-run business founded in Italy, whose operations extend worldwide.
