Alessandra Cavanna
Alessandra Cavanna joined Cavanna Packaging Group 19 years ago, after a five-years career in law in one of the major legal firm in Novara. 
She has been Cavanna Packaging's CEO since 1999, and manages Human Resources, Finance, Control, Legal Affairs and Safety.
Alessandra shares with her brother Riccardo, Operations Chief Executive Officer, all strategic decisions for "Cavanna Packaging Group". 
Since 2014, she is member of the Regency Council of the Bank of Italy, in Turin office.
Drawn to a challenge, with listening skills, curiosity, ability to analyze and to study the terms of the problems, Alessandra identified two essential tools to manage the new responsibilities.
The first one is the constant training, which requires self-criticism and willingness to change. 
She has recently obtained a Master in General Management at MIP – Milan Polytechnic – she is also Counselor in Core Energetics, a psycho-physical discipline that enriches her in professional and personal level. 
The second tool is teamwork, very important for the cooperation attitudes, support and understanding within the Company.
"Believe in family values, group values and team spirit, being and doing things together, complement each other on a personal level in my third and most important family: my two children (my real teachers) and my husband, to whom I extend my gratitude".
