    DPA 07:39 FERRARI BOSS NAMED NEW HEAD OF ITALY'S BUSINESS GUILD


    Rome (dpa) - Ferrari President Luca Cordero di Montezemolo was
    Thursday called to head Confindustria, Italy's most powerful business
    guild.
    Montezemolo, 56, was the only candidate nominated to head the guild
    over the next four years and received the backing of the vast majority
    of the guild's delegates.
    He will be formally appointed in May.
    A lawyer by training, Montezemolo first joined Ferrari in 1973,
    when he became an assistant to the car maker's founder, Enzo Ferrari.
    He headed the organizing committee of Italy's 1990 football World
    Cup and sat on the board of the Juventus football team before being
    asked by Fiat to head its Ferrari and Maserati subsidiaries.
    In the run-up to his appointment, he has called for measures aimed
    at boosting the competitiveness of Italian businesses and is open to
    dialogue with the country's trade unions. dpa nr mga

    I'll bet he'll be President of Italy someday. The only unknown is if he wanted it. He's been making tones about being tired of Ferrari for years though, as he already turned them completely around... wants another business challenge.
