CARLSBAD, Calif. (BRAIN) — Tom Kattus is leaving Campagnolo North America after 10 1/2 years as the company's general manager for North America. Kattus and the Italian company said the parting was amicable.


"Tom joined the Campagnolo company in April of 2008 as general manager of Campagnolo North America and I joined the Campagnolo company in 2010. I've had the pleasure of working with Tom over the past eight years and we have collaborated very well together," said Michele Cardi, the commercial director of Campagnolo. "We are very sad to see Tom go, but know he will continue to be an ambassador for our brand and he will do great things in his future endeavors."

Kattus said, "It has truly been my pleasure and honor to work with the Campagnolo brand over the past 10 years. I've had a great team to work with in Carlsbad and Vicenza, and I have fostered great relationships and lifelong friendships with our distributors, OEM partners and dealers. I will always be grateful for the 10 years with this iconic brand, but it's time for me to close this chapter of my professional career and explore new opportunities.

"I'm going to enjoy some time off with family and friends and will come back fully charged and ready for my next adventure."

Kattus’ final day with Campagnolo was Tuesday. Michele Cardi will be taking over the position of managing director.
