Giorgio Martellino is currently the General Counsel and Compliance Officer of Avio, a leading company in the space propulsion, listing on the STAR segment of the Italian Stock Exchange. Thanks to this current experience as General Counsel, Chief Compliance Officer and member of Compliance Committee 231 of Avio, he improved his skills in compliance matters leading projects on anticorruption, sustainability and risk management. He previously served as as General Counsel, acquired both in foreign Corporate Group (Abbott), Italian multinationals (Natuzzi and Cementir) and Italian Utility (Acquedotto Pugliese Spa).
He possesses an in-depth knowledge of Corporate Governance systems (including listed companies). In general, especially during the last years, as Vice Chairman of the Italian In-House Counsel Association (AIGI) and Chairman of Italian Association for Transparency and Anticorruption (AITRA) he had the chance to create a strong network with his peers of other leading companies, both in private and public sectors, and to profitably discuss and convene with them on certain “best practices” in managing some of the most important processes within the Compliance area (also by using IT tools). He has been a speaker and opinion leader on Corporate and Compliance in several forums, congresses and workshops and a professor in those matters in the Master for In House Counsels at LUISS and LUMSA, both Universities based in Rome.
