Previously in the Italian branch of the group, Litec Italia, Savarese has gained an overall 16-year experience in the professional entertainment industry. Recently, she has been admitted to the prestigious General Management Program at the renowned École Supérieure de Commerce de Paris – ESCP (in the Financial Times Global MBA ranking), which made her the best candidate for the Managing Director role.

Simone Francia, Executive Vice President, will flank Savarese in this new company asset and commented: “The founding family, first and second generation, will still maintain the guide of this historical Italian company. Dante Latteo (the President) and myself, strongly believe that Carmen is the most skilled person to have in the Top Management team in this crucial moment for the growth of our family company.

Savarese will have the full responsibility for the leadership and business development of DTS. She will play a key role in meeting the company’s growth goals and will also be instrumental in consolidating our reputation among the industry key players.”

Internationalisation, growth, consolidation represent the main identity of “the new course”: the founding family’s second generation, the management and corporate re-positioning.
“It will be through the specific skills acquired in my career and the support of a fantastic team, that I intend to improve the efficiency of the whole company. I’d like to confirm the will of the founders and current owners, which I strongly support, that the main production processes will stay in Italy.

The core values of DTS have always been the family experience, the history and the passion of every single employee. I trust that everyone will support this renewal, first and foremost the founding family.”
