ROME—Riccardo Perissich, former public and economic affairs director of Pirelli and  Telecom Italia Group, has joined APCO Worldwide as senior counselor, reporting to Nicola Raffa, managing director of APCO’s Rome office.

 

Perissich began his career with the Istituto Affari Internazionali in Rome, where he came to serve as deputy director of the institute before moving to the European Commission in 1970. After holding the office of “chef de cabinet” for four members of the Commission, he became in 1986 deputy director-general of DG Internal Market and Industrial Affairs. In that position, he coordinated the Single Market program for the European Commission. In 1990, Perissich became the director-general for industry, a position he held until he joined Pirelli in 1994.

 

During his 12 years at Pirelli, Perissich served as director of public affairs and was a member of the board of directors until 2001. He then moved to Telecom Italia Group where he served as director of the central public and economic affairs function as well as being a member of the board of directors of Telecom Italia Mobile and chairman of Telecom Italia Media.
