The Italian Design House and coachbuilder Pininfarina has a history that dates back to 1930. Pininfarina offers to the market - both OEMs and final consumers - competitive products and services based on its brand values: creativity, experience and innovation.
Pininfarina designed the 2011 Rising Stars trophy, the new annual award presented by Automotive News Europe that honours mid- and upper-level managers who are likely to become CEOs or executive board members in the future.
"We are pleased to associate Pininfarina with an award that celebrates the most successful and talented young people from the industry" - said Chairman Paolo Pininfarina. "Thinking of the leaders of tomorrow we started from the concept of Michelangelo's 'Non finito', a technique that consists of sculpting some parts of the figure while leaving other parts rough, thus catching just a glimpse of the image that the artist is freeing from material. As it is for the Rising Stars trophy, which recognizes the young managers whose enormous potential can already be perceived".
