VITTORIO GARRONE

Vittorio Garrone is an entrepreneur, an industrialist and a shareholder of the ERG Group, an important and well-known Italian private energy group. Ed ancora, fondatore, titolare e anima degli allevamenti He is also the founder, owner and soul of both the Basini and the BW Elevage(WOW Breeding and Sport Horses) stud farms as well as of Team WOW. To date, he has had a very interesting personal and professional life.
But let us start at the beginning.
Vittorio was born in Genoa in 1966 and has always been a keen sportsman and a great lover of nature. Over the years, he remained true to his family’s sensitivity by continuing to look after the people and the environmental protection of the area in which he has his “roots”. As for the environmental sector, Vittorio has been the managing director of companies operating in the agricultural-forestry-fauna sector (Cascina Laura srl and Valloncro’ srl), and, for several years, was vice-president of the IREOS s.p.a. Group, a leading company in the environmental reclamation and resource recovery sector. Since 1986, however, Vittorio has been managing activities concerning wildlife requalification, involving the Apennines and mountain territories, as well as breeding horses, which, over time – thanks to the care, ethics and tenacity involved – has become a high-quality activity aimed at breeding horses for Olympic disciplines. Basini Breeding was founded in Piedmont over 30 years ago. More recently, BW Elevage (WOW Breeding and Sport Horses) was also set up in Normandy and, in particular, Team WOW was created and now competes in the most prestigious international shows in the world, led by the extraordinary and famous champion Michel Robert, the team’s Technical Director and Top Rider. Vittorio’s vision did not end with the creation of these two stud farms. In 2013 TEAM WOWassumed a new role, becoming a new reality in the equestrian world that, thanks to a cohesive team of professionals and an innovative methodological approach, does not settle for being a winning and sporting team, but aims at becoming a role model in both the national and international equestrian world over the next decade. Vittorio Garrone’s intuition resulted in the creation of heterogeneous team work – together with best practices acquired over decades of top management and a passion for equestrian sports – also involving Michel Robertin the project, It was thus, that in 2017, this close “human partnership ” was born! It was not long before the team’s younger riders started to win at international shows and this innovative training philosophy was also rewarded by Fieracavalli Verona in 2018, when Vittorio Garrone was appointed as the representative of the event’s ethical committee for show jumping.
Vittorio Garrone holds many other positions in the equestrian world, including that of Vice President and member ofA.N.A.S.I. (National Association of Italian Horse Breeders), Vice President and auditor ofA.C.S.I. (Italian Sport Horses Association) as well as being a member and supporting associate of A.P.I.C.E. (Italian Riding Horse Owners Association). Moreover, from 2006 to 2008 he was the managing director of AIPAC and a member of the UNIRE Committee for Sportand Breeding Policies. Furthermore, between 2008 and 2010 he was Vice-President of the Italian Equestrian Sports Federation (FISE), commissioned by the board of directors to reorganise both the federation and international relations. His managerial skills have been “lent” on several occasions to the sports sector. Quite recently, he was also a member of the Board of Directorsof UC Sampdoria and responsible for all marketing activities. As an entrepreneur in the industrial sector, Vittorio Garrone’s biography remains outstanding and includes his positions as ERG Group shareholder, a member of the board of directors at Dyepower Consortium for Advanced Research on Organic Solar Development since 2009 as well as Board Member and Deputy Chairman of ERG RENEWspa since 2007, responsible for coordination, investment monitoring and international development of renewable energy. Since 2013, Vittorio has been the chairman of ERG WIND Ltd daland since 2014, member of the Supervisory Board of ERG’s holding company San Quirico spa. He has been the chairman ERG spa as well as the chairman ERG POWER GENERATION, a subsidiary of ERG spa for the production of the Group’s entire renewable energy(Wind-Hydro-Solar) since 2016.
It is his probably his background that helps explain how Team WOW, and all it has achieved, is a reality made possible also thanks to the instinct and intuition of this gentleman, all so important both in terms of both significant professional experience and sensitivity.
