Laura Cioli’s pole position for the chair of CEO of Rai loses strength. After the postponement of the Rai assembly at the beginning of June due to the lack of agreement on the president by the political parties, come on boatos that come from the Roman palaces the only fixed point on the new round of appointments of the top of the state TV is only the gender difference. And that is that in the event that a male president is chosen, the role of CEO will be up to a woman and vice versa.
Sources report to affaritaliani.it that as regards the manager who will have to go and collect the inheritance of Fabrizio Salini, the premier Mario Draghi will decide autonomously with the same method with which the box was filled, it is explained, of Cdp, while the presidency will be the result of a precise agreement with the political forces, prodromal to obtaining, then, the go-ahead in the Supervisory Committee with a two-thirds majority.
The sources explain that a clearer picture will be available next week, Monday or Tuesday, immediately on the eve of the assembly in first call (on 12 July in second) when it will be necessary to start pulling the strings at the top.
But what I seem to understand is that the two top manager, whose names had circulated for the role of CEO and that is the former RCS Laura Cioli and the outgoing CEO of Open Fiber, Elisabetta Ripa, they shouldn’t be in the game. Back in which Cioli, for the extremely prestigious curriculum that saw her in top positions in Eni, Sky, Cartasì, Rcs and Gedi, was given in pole position, also for support, it is said of the minister for innovation technological Vittorio Colao, with which he collaborated at the time of Vodafone.
Instead, sources who know her well reveal that, unless there are last-minute convictions and turnarounds, in Laura Cioli it is probable that negative considerations prevail for a position in which, in addition to the ceiling of the annual salary of 240 thousand euros for the salaries of public managers, one ends up becoming the target of political parties for three years.
