Antiques News & Fairs - Institute of Export and International Trade Appoints New Director General

Marco Forgione

BADA, British Antique Dealers’ Association has announced that Marco Forgioni, Director General of the Association will leave the association in January 2020 to take up the post of Director General of
The Institute of Export and International Trade.

Michael Cohen, Chairman of BADA said: "Marco joined the team at BADA at a time of major changes affecting every aspect of the association and was required to hit the ground running.

I have truly enjoyed working with Marco over the past four years and believe he leaves the association having achieved financial stability and having left us prepared for the challenges of the 21st century.

We are confident that we will find a suitable replacement to take on the position of CEO by the spring of 2020. The Council is grateful for Marco's achievements during his tenure and we wish him every success in his new position."

Marco Forgioni said: “It has been an honour to help lead BADA over the past four years and to work with so many brilliant people at a time when the trade has faced unimaginable change and disruption. The stable platform that’s been built will ensure that the association and its members can look to the future with confidence.

 

I’m grateful for the opportunities and experiences I’ve had working for BADA members for the past four years. As I leave to lead the Institute of Export and International Trade, I will continue to advocate, in the strongest terms, for the role of the antiques and art trade as an important driver of the UK’s future trading relationships.”

From a statement from The Institute of Export and International Trade:

Mr Forgione said upon his appointment:

“I am delighted and honoured to be appointed as the Institute of Export & International Trade’s next DG, particularly at this critical time for the UK. Export and international trade are absolutely fundamental to building the UK’s future. The Institute has a central role to play in helping businesses prepare for and exploit the opportunities this new landscape offers, through its world class suite of qualifications, training courses, membership offerings and events.”

Mr Forgione, currently the Director General of the British Antique Dealers’ Association, will take up his post in January 2020.

Prior to his role as DG of BADA, Marco has served as a government advisor, held senior positions in the education and communications sector and has led numerous Trade Missions to overseas trading partners including to China, the UAE, Qatar and India.

With a strong track record in successfully leading membership organisations, working with members and engaging with government and other stakeholders, Marco will bring energy, expertise and renewed leadership to the Institute as we enter a new era of considerable growth and opportunity.

Terry Scuoler, Chairman of the IOE&IT, said:

“It will be a great pleasure to welcome Marco to the Institute and to work with him to deliver our future strategy, continually improve our service offering to members and to be ever more effective in helping companies to access export markets and trade more effectively.”
