ZIV mourns the death of Moreno Fioravanti

Burkhard Stork, CEO of ZIV: «We are deeply shocked. Moreno Fioravanti was always there! Always, because he has been working in the bicycle industry for 40 years. He has worked for our umbrella organization CONEBI in Brussels since the 1990s, and for EBMA from 2003. As an employee, general secretary and most recently president, he efficiently protected the German and European bicycle industry against dumping and unfair competition and made great progress for our industry in all regulatory issues in Brussels. Moreno was always there because he was always “on duty», always approachable, always well informed, always helpful. It’s legendary how with him, on the sidelines of some reception, you were immediately immersed in the topics and details of an important project that was central to the industry. And almost at the same time, the information arrived in your own inbox from one of his numerous laptops and telephones. At the same time he was a humanitarian, could enjoy good food and good wine, and was – in the best sense of the word – an old-school gentleman. The board, presidium and team of ZIV and the entire German bicycle industry know what they owe to Moreno Fioravanti. We will always remember him with gratitude.”
