Professional biography in brief: Giorgio Paris

Giorgio Paris has been president of Volvo Penta's Region Emerging Markets and Asia Pacific (EM & APAC) since 2006.


An Italian national, Giorgio Paris, 59, trained as a mechanical engineer and began his career in 1979 as a salesman with Fiat Powertrain Technologies. Three years later, he moved to Mercedes Benz, where he became an area manager within the trucks, special vehicles and components division. In 1984, he began working for the Same Lamborghini Group as a manager of domestic market sales and, later on, of the entire sales function, including exports.

In January 1997, Giorgio was appointed industrial sales manager at Volvo Penta Italy, subsequently taking on responsibility for sales in Southern Europe in 2000. In 2004, he became the industrial segment head of Region Europe, and in 2006 he was appointed president of then-Region International. In January 2013, his job title changed to reflect Volvo Penta's new regional structures — he now looks after the emerging markets and Asia Pacific. Giorgio's focus is primarily on sales, strategy implementation and business development, especially in the emerging markets. He is also head of the company's industrial segment.

Originally from Milan, Giorgio is now mainly based in Gothenburg, although his family — wife and twin daughters — still live in the Milan area. In his spare time he enjoys playing tennis and golf and watching football; he is an avid supporter of Juventus in Turin.
