Giorgio Ascanelli has joined the Brembo Group as chief technical officer (CTO), heading up the company’s advanced research and technical development departments.
Ascanelli has many years of experience in the world of auto racing, having begun his career in 1985 with the mechanical engineering staff of Scuderia Ferrari. He also worked for Abarth, Benetton F1 and McLaren F1, before becoming technical director with Maserati Corse in 2002, and then with Scuderia Toro Rosso from 2007 to 2012. With the arrival of Ascanelli, Brembo is looking to give fresh impetus into the company and bring new skills to an area of activity that has always been its main engine, while at the same time sending out a strong signal of continuity to the market. Indeed it is precisely through steady investments in R&D that Brembo has always managed to offer ultra high performance products that are at the leading edge of technology. In the coming years, Brembo will need to develop radically innovative projects to ensure that the engineering side evolves in line with the company’s best traditions, while also responding to the new demands of the automotive industry.
Brembo SpA is a world leader and innovator in disc brake technology for automotive vehicles.
