Francesco Rattalino: ESCP Europe's new ‘Direttore’ for Torino

Professor Francesco Rattalino has been appointed new Director for ESCP Europe’s Torino Campus after a very tough selection process. Many of our alumni will know him well from student days in Torino.

The Dean, Edouard Husson said "I am very happy about his appointment because it rewards the great work done by all of the staff and professors of the Torino campus in the last several months. Although it’s an internal promotion, Francesco has been evaluated by a search committee according to the highest international standards, so I am particularly happy that our business school has groomed over the years such a very high calibre scholar and manager."

Professor Rattalino teaches Management Control and has been the Director of Studies of the Torino Campus. He teaches on master programmes and also on a range of open enrollment and custom programmes for executives. He was also Lecturer of Business Administration at the University of Turin.

His current research interests are in strategy execution, performance management and public sector. He graduated cum laude in Economics from the University of Turin where he also gained his PhD in Business Administration with a thesis on "Performance Management in the Public Sector: Implementing the Balanced Scorecard at the Chamber of Commerce of Turin".

His professional career began as a financial analyst at Ferrero International BV in the Netherlands, after which he moved to USA to work as a Senior Financial Application Consultant for Oracle Corp. After that he returned to Italy to work in the consulting industry for Motion International. He joined ESCP Europe in 2006 as Director of Studies.

Professor Rattalino has written various research papers and won the “PREMIO OPTIME 1995/96”, Award of Academic Merit of the University of Turin and Turin Industrial Union.

"I am very honoured by this appointment, which I consider as recognition for the great job done by all my colleagues, both staff and professors at the Turin Campus. Together, in Italy, we have strengthened the youngest branch of our business school to meet the heights of excellence achieved by ESCP Europe’s older established campuses in Paris, London, Berlin and Madrid." said Professor Rattalino.
