We gladly share today’s news about Carlo Robiglio, a distinguished member of the International Advisory Board of the Miami Scientific Italian Community, is the new President of Piccola Industria of Confindustria (General Confederation of Italian Industry).
Carlo Robiglio is a first-generation entrepreneur, founder, president and CEO of the holding company Ebano S.p.A., as well as vice president of the Board of Directors of IL SOLE 24 ORE S.p.A..
He was born in Turin on June 24, 1963, and later moved with his family to Novara. After graduating from high school, he graduated in Law at the Catholic University of Sacro Cuore in Milan.
In 1992, he began his business as an entrepreneur and publisher by establishing the publishing house Interlinea S.r.l., which initially had a strong territorial imprint. The publishing house evolved in the years to follow with series dedicated to specific literary fields (among them, the Nativitas series, the only European series dedicated to Christmas). Currently Interlinea S.r.l. includes over two thousand publications distributed in libraries throughout the country.
To run the publishing business, that together with training and digital economy are still the cornerstone of the entrepreneur’s interests, a series of companies in the chain of sectors highlighted above have been founded or acquired over the years; all companies that come under Carlo Robiglio’s company, Ebano S.p.A.
In particular, in 2013, with the establishment of CEF Publishing S.r.L., the Ebano Group became an Italian leader in the sector of professional courses, in specific areas, delivered through distance learning and an innovative social-learning platform. Ebano S.p.A.’s activity has been particularly relevant in recent years in the acquisition of innovative startups. In this regard, Ebano has founded a holding company dedicated to this, Accademia del Cimento S.r.l., with which it is developing a substantial acquisition plan for startups and development involved with the main Italian universities and others.
Today, the Ebano S.p.A. group, through its subsidiaries, employs a workforce of over two hundred people.
Parallel to the holding company, Carlo Robiglio has always been involved with Confindustria, including: the chairmanship of the Confindustria Piemonte Small Industry Regional Committee, the member of the Central Committee for Small Industry of Confindustria Nazionale and of the Confindustria General Board for the two-year period of 2017-2019. Robiglio was director of the national Confindustria Small Industry magazine IMPRENDITORE which, with its advent, is also published in an online version alongside the more traditional paper format.
Currently Vice Chairman of the Board of Directors of IL SOLE 24 ORE S.p.A., in October/November 2016, in a particularly complex and delicate transition period for the company, he served as Chairman.
From the beginning of 2017, Robiglio is the General Representative of the American Chamber of Commerce in Italy for Eastern Piedmont.
In 2012, Robiglio was awarded the title of Knight of the Order of Merit of the Italian Republic.
We wish President Robiglio a successful and productive tenure in his new position.
