The Taiwanese hardware and electronics giant Acer has announced it has appointed Angelo d’Ambrosio as its new head and general manager at Acer France to lead all business divisions, marketing, finance and service support.
Additionally, in his new role d’Ambrosio will be expected to support and deploy the group’s strategy in the French market with a particular focus on development of high-potential market segments and positioning Acer as a top seller under the convertible computers category and as a major player in the smartphone market in France.
He will replace Daniel Trachino who has been recently promoted to oversee the company’ operations in the Middle East region. D’Ambrosio will report to Massimo D’Angelo, Acer EMEA Vice President South Europe region (France, Spain, Portugal, Greece and Israel).
