The Group’s CORE Values: Courage, Ownership, Respect and Energy are actively supporting the Group’s priorities, encouraging consistent behaviours across the Group to sustain our business success in the future.


  • I systematically say, decide and do what is right for Vesuvius including when it is difficult, unpopular, or not consensual.
  • I express my opinions openly during discussions, but I also defend group decisions once they’ve been taken, even if they do not correspond to my initial position.
  • I proactively take leadership responsibility on difficult projects and topics that are important to the Group’s performance, motivated by the perspective of success rather than paralysed by the risk of personal failure.
  • I am personally accountable for the consequences of my actions and for the performance of the Group in my area of responsibility or oversight, without blaming external circumstances or the actions of others.
  • I demonstrate an entrepreneurial spirit, looking for and seizing business opportunities and I immediately address problems that come up as soon as I become aware of them.
  • I manage the Group’s money and resources as though they were my own. 
  • I demonstrate respect for other people’s ideas and opinions even if I disagree with them.
  • I welcome open debate. I listen to others, foster esteem and fairness with customers, suppliers, co-workers, shareholders and the communities where we operate.
  • I communicate my objectives clearly and take time to explain all decisions. I behave with the highest level of integrity. I promote diversity at all levels of the Company.
  • I work hard and professionally in pursuit of excellence.
  • I constantly raise the bar and challenge the status quo. For me, the sky is the limit. I lead by example, inspiring and motivating my team to go the extra mile. I promote a positive and energising work environment.
  • I continuously deliver outstanding customer experience and innovative solutions.
  • I never underestimate competitors and permanently strive to reinforce the Group’s leadership position.
