GOODBYE TO PIER ANTONIO BRASI
There are people that have lived instant by instant Comelit’s history. And they have tied each moment of their life up to the growth of the firm. One of them is Pier Antonio Brasi, President of the Group until July 2017, who left his loved ones and his company the night of June 14th at the age of 79.
Born in Clusone on January 15th 1939, after a thriving football career on Novara and Piacenza team, Pier Antonio Brasi has joined the Comelit team, located in Rovetta and specialized in the planning and production of security systems. In 1967 he became Technical Manager, in 1986 he earned the role of Vice-President and CEO until 1998 when he was proudly appointed as President and CEO. Always socially committed, he was a member and, for some years, also President of Lions, the biggest humane society of the world. The people who knew him, remember him as an open-minded person with a big heart, deeply passionate for football but, above all, attached to his family and his job.
A long career in Comelit, led up to 20 years as President. The co-workers want to remember him with his own words:
“Many others out there have asked me if it was worth it: the work, the effort, the disappointments, the sleepless nights, the fear of making a mistake that would affect employees, shareholders, suppliers, etc. Luckily, I have never had to ask myself this question, but I owe the rest of you an answer and it is “Yes!”. Yes, when I hear increasingly positive things about Comelit. Yes, when I see seasoned professionals promote and sell our name and our products with conviction. Yes, when I see Comelit employees work with enthusiasm and satisfaction. Yes, when I see them grow along with Comelit. We will face our challenges with the greatest respect for companies larger than us, but without fear: effort doesn’t scare us!”
