03 Nov Ernesto Marinelli new Product and Technical Director
Ernesto Marinelli joins the Termignoni team as the new Product Director and Technical Director. The mechanical engineer from Ducati has made racing history at the Borgo Panigale-based company: a partnership that began in 1995 and was studded with success in Superbike racing.
With over twenty years of experience, Ernesto Marinelli will now lead the Research and Development team that has made Termignoni a leader in high performance motorcycle exhausts, thanks to the study of technical solutions and design always at the forefront.
The bar for customer satisfaction, today, is much higher than in the past: producing exhaust systems for motorcycles means facing the demand for increasingly sophisticated technological and electronic solutions. For this reason we have chosen one of the first engineers in the world in the mechanical field. We project ourselves into the future aiming to consolidate the historic partnership Termignoni – Ducati and to expand the aftermarket offer through collaborations with other manufacturers.
“We’ve always wanted to find new ways to share passion. We have done this by focusing on research, technology, but also on tradition and craftsmanship. All this has been possible thanks to the people who have always worked with us, in whom we have believed and invested,” says our CEO, Michele Burnengo, “But today’s challenge is more complex and to win it is not enough to know your product. You have to have a global vision of the sector, of the project and of the bike. In a few words: to be the best. Ernesto Marinelli meets all these requirements because he is a top level professional with an excellent education. We are aware that leaving Ducati, after more than twenty years of a distinguished career, was not a painless choice. But we are equally sure that his human qualities and his experience are what we were looking for to get the best out of our people. Marinelli will be an important reference point for our engineering team and for our long-standing specialized staff.“
The company welcomes the new Product and Technical Director and wishes him well in his work, with the certainty that this is just the beginning of a new era of success.
