Milano – 28 April 2023. SEGULA Technologies, a global engineering group, has appointed Federico Viganò as Managing Director of its Italian subsidiary, with the aim of accelerating the company’s positioning in the high-end segment.
Federico Viganò will be responsible for developing and strengthening the Group’s business lines in Italy, with particularly ambitious growth prospects in the medium term. Federico Viganò, who has significant experience abroad, brings to SEGULA Italy solid skills and in-depth experience in the engineering and design sector, which will strengthen the consultancy and services offered to customers and increase business opportunities in Italy.
In the past, Federico Viganò served first as CEO of SEGULA China and later as CEO of Technicon Design worldwide, a renowned design house with major projects in the transportation, naval, aerospace, luxury and industrial design sectors. He joined SEGULA Technologies in 2017 and previously served as General Manager of Pininfarina China, leading the group in defining a new business model.

“I am excited to return to Italy and support our local clients towards new levels of transformation that look even more towards globalisation,” Federico Viganò emphasises. “In particular, the automotive sector is experiencing a moment of true evolution and Italian brands, now placed in an international context, must be ready to face it with high skills and expertise.”
With 300 employees in Italy, SEGULA Technologies has a well-established presence on the domestic market, particularly in the field of software systems and mechanics. The Group operates in support of the most important realities of the Italian industrial and manufacturing system and beyond.

My commitment will be dedicated to achieving these goals, putting my skills at the service of the company.”
