Cataldi appointed GM of UFI Filters’ aftermarket business

Paolo Cataldi has been appointed general manager of UFI Filters Group’s aftermarket business unit.

UFI said Cataldi (pictured), 55, will take the lead for the aftermarket globally for the group’s activities in filtration, thermal management and technologies for the development of hydrogen mobility.

Cataldi has more than 25 years of management experience and a strong background in the automotive aftermarket in Italy and internationally.

UFI Filters Group CEO Stefano Gava, whose promotion to his post was reported by Aftermarket earlier this year, said Cataldi’s expertise would help propel the firm’s UFI and SOFIMA businesses to new heights, with UFI aiming for double-digit growth worldwide in the next three years.

“Paolo has the important objective of consolidating and strengthening our market leadership in Italy and to drive other countries in the same direction.”
