Head of Lamborghini in Montréal: Innovation and Leadership in the Automotive Industry

The ICCC proudly welcomed Stefano Domenicali, Chairman and CEO of Automobili Lamborghini, for a luncheon-conference on June 10th, 2019 at the Fairmont Le Reine Elizabeth in Montréal.

The event marked the first time that Mr. Domenicali addressed the Montréal business community as Chairman and CEO of Lamborghini and is the only event Mr. Domenicali has included in his 2019 calendar of engagements in Canada. 

Mr. Domenicali delivered his speech to more than 250 leaders, stakeholders and representatives of the business community, on the importance of innovation and leadership in the automotive industry.

In fact, under Mr. Domenicali’s leadership, Lamborghini’s success can be attributed to a continued commitment to innovative technologies as well as the skill and business acumen required to more than double production capacity in just a few years.
