In 1988, after completing his university studies (in Milan), Mauro Ledro began working at Teksid S.p.A., a wholly owned subsidiary of FIAT S.p.A.. In 1996, after having held a number of different positions within that company, Mauro Ledro was appointed managing director of Teksid Deutschland GmbH, a position he held until 2000.
An interest in acquiring additional experience in the SME sector (small and medium-sized enterprises) then led Mauro Ledro to take a position with Fonderie Mario Mazzucconi S.p.A., the largest Italian family-owned aluminium foundry group. From 2000 to 2004, he served as executive director, sales, for that company and as managing director of Mazzucconi Deutschland GmbH.
In 2005, seeking to offer his extensive experience to a wider range of companies, Mauro Ledro founded mledro GmbH.
