ROME – Paolo Dal Pino is the new president of the Serie A League. He has been elected by the assembly of twenty clubs with 12 votes, one more than the simple majority required after two elective assemblies which have failed.
Milanese, born in 1962, Dal Pino began his career as a manager in Fininvest in 1986, then holding top roles in publishing and telecommunications, in Mondadori, the Espresso group's Kataweb, Telecom, Seat Pg, Pirelli and Wind.
Dal Pino had already touched the appointment in the second elective assembly, last December 16, collecting 13 and 12 votes in the three ballots, including those of Rome, Lazio, Milan and Genoa. With the lowering of the quorum this time 12 were enough to be elected.
A ballot was left blank and another 7 votes went to Gaetano Miccichè , who had resigned from the presidency of the League on November 19 after the Federal Prosecutor's inquiry into his election, and who was nominated shortly before the vote by the president of the Turin Urban Cairo.
“The election took place in my opinion in a rather improvised way. We adults contested the method by which we got to the election, certainly not the person, because Dal Pino represents an important manager but it seemed right to be able to confront him to listen to his program. We have not shared this choice and we have voted. " So the CEO of Inter, Giuseppe Marotta, after the election of the president of the Serie A League (source Ansa).
