Lincotek Group, headquartered in Rubbiano, Italy, has appointed Andrea Colombo as the new CEO of the group. Colombo has succeeded outgoing CEO Winfried Schaller, assuming the position on September 5, 2022.

Colombo has more that twenty-five years of international experience in the energy, oil & gas and FinTech industries. He joins Lincotek from NCR, where he was the vice president of Global Product Operations. Prior to NCR, he held the position of vice president of the Energy Business Unit at Chromalloy and also spent fourteen years with General Electric Oil & Gas, managing businesses with increasing size up to a $3.5 billion annual turnover.

“I am thrilled to join the Lincotek family and I am humbled to lead the organisation into its next chapter,” stated Colombo. “I am impressed by the technology Lincotek has developed over the last five decades, the level of quality achieved in servicing its customers around the globe and I am proud to be part of a very ambitious team that want to play a critical role in the future of the medical, energy and aviation industry.”

Throughout his career, Colombo is said to have developed strong skills in project management, supply chain operations and P&L management, as well as business development and M&A. He also developed critical leadership skills leading large, diverse global organisations around the world. Colombo received his Master of Science in Electrical Engineering from Universita’ di Padova, Italy together with his post-graduation Master in Engineering for Nuclear Energy before entering the Electrical Engineering PhD programme.

The company explained that former CEO Schaller has played a vital role in a key transitional phase for Lincotek. Thanks to his strong direction, Lincotek is a global leader in its respective market segments and has more than doubled its size via acquisitions and organic growth, and expanded its global footprint, especially in the USA.

Schaller commented, “The years have been full of challenges, but have also brought a lot of satisfaction. It certainly wasn’t always easy, but with passion, resilience and a great team, it was a pleasure to realise our vision. The time has now come for me to face new challenges and I leave this group with the knowledge that this will be again a new beginning of the next phase in the growth of Lincotek. I am proud to have led the group through this transition and hand over this responsibility to Andrea with a sense of nostalgia and also of gratitude. I would like to thank my team, the owners and our partners and customers for all the support during those years.”

Linda and Nelso Antolotti, owners of the Lincotek Group, added, “We are very excited about Andrea joining as the new Lincotek CEO. His proven leadership and global perspective will be the perfect fit for Lincotek’s next chapter. The experience Andrea has developed during his career will be a key asset to drive first-class customer service while growing Lincotek business worldwide.”
