Diego Stefani

Olimpia Splendid S.p.A., a family owned HVAC manufacturing company since 1956, based in Brescia, in northern Italy, has appointed Diego Stefani as the Director of Sales & Business Development North America. In this new role, Stefani is responsible for bringing the unique Made in Italy heating and air conditioning products to the US and Canadian markets. Stefani will be focused on building the Olimpia Splendid brand name, which is a market leader in Europe, but unknown in North America. Specifically, in this role, Stefani will be setting up the Olimpia Splendid USA sales office based in the Dallas, TX area and will be establishing the distribution network and developing strategic growth plans to introduce a product line that has never been sold in the North American market until now.
Stefani, with a bachelor’s degree in Business Economics, comes to Olimpia Splendid with 25 years of HVAC industry experience in international and domestic business development, sales & marketing as well as sales management on both the manufacturer and distribution side of the business. Stefani brings his expertise in the sales of HVAC systems (residential/commercial/applied) as well as a proven track record of taking new products to market, marketing leadership, and channel development strategies, as a key member of the Olimpia Splendid USA Management Team.
Stefani commented “I am very excited about this entrepreneurial career opportunity to work for an innovative HVAC manufacturer like Olimpia Splendid, who is an industry leader with a rich history in Europe and manufacturers air conditioners, fan coils and heat pump that are Made in Italy and not currently available in American and Canadian markets, which is a very appealing benefit to potential distribution partners.” “Being that I am born in Italy, make this opportunity even more meaningful as it hits close to home. I am very proud to represent Olimpia Splendid and I am looking forward to being part of what the future holds, as it becomes an industry leader with tremendous growth opportunities.”
Stefani comes to Olimpia Splendid after having worked for The Whalen Company, Daikin/Goodman Manufacturing, CDI, York International and Johnson Controls. “Olimpia Splendid has a growth strategy that includes significant international expansion, in fact in the past 5 years we have opened sales offices in France, Spain, Brazil, China and now in the United States. We could have not asked for a better, more qualified professional than Diego Stefani to head up our sales efforts in North America, not only does he bring a wealth of HVAC industry experience, but also being that he is Italian, he understands what will be required for an Italian company to become a market leader in the largest HVAC market in the world.” said Olimpia Splendid USA, President, Marco Saccone.
