Earlier, he was assistant controller at Fiat Auto Ireland in Dublin and site controller at ST Microelectronics in Milan.
Aligned values and dedication
MSC Cruises Executive Chairman Pierfrancesco Vago welcomed Piccirillo to the company’s senior management team.
'He is an example of how a young professional with values that are aligned with those of our company and the necessary dedication at MSC Cruises can aspire to a long and successful career all the way to the top,' Vago said.
Appreciation for outgoing CFO
Vago also thanked former CFO Jean-Philippe Neau for his contribution and dedication during the past three years, 'supporting and leading a phase of significant growth for the business that saw MSC Cruises become the world’s third largest cruise brand.' He added that Neau remains in the 'family' as he joins the holding company MSC Group to focus on project finance work.
