MARNYS – Martínez Nieto S.A., the Spanish laboratory specialized in the manufacturing and commercialization of nutritional supplements and natural cosmetics, has announced the appointment of Luca D’Ambrosio as the new CEO of the company. D’Ambrosio takes over from Roberto Martínez, who assumes the role of Chairman of the Board for the new corporate holding.

Luca D’Ambrosio, Ph.D. in Economics, brings his distinguished international professional career and expertise in the pharmaceutical sector to his new role as CEO of MARNYS – Martínez Nieto S.A. "I am deeply grateful for the trust placed in me for this new chapter”, expressed D’Ambrosio. "It is an honor to join a team of highly talented and committed professionals. From the outset, I have been captivated by the vision and extraordinary dedication of the founding family and the spirit of innovation that permeates the company. Looking ahead, I have full confidence in our ability to continue growing and achieving new successes" he adds.

Roberto Martínez Mockel, who is second-generation member of the Martínez family, served as CEO since 2017, previously holding various responsibilities in the commercial, marketing, purchasing, and deputy management departments. Martínez Mockel's contributions have been instrumental in the company's undeniable growth and consolidation in both national and international markets. "My connection with MARNYS – Martínez Nieto S.A. will remain profound, as it is the family company founded by my father in 1968 and in which our family continues to have a significant stake. I am convinced that in the future, we will continue a path of great success, thanks to the excellent team now led by Luca and with the invaluable support of Magnum Capital", Martínez Mockel affirms.

The group embarked on a new phase in September 2023 with the entry of the investment fund Magnum Capital into its shareholding as the majority shareholder, previously owned by the Martínez family, with the aim of accelerating growth and continuing the commitment to innovation, quality, and international expansion. Following the entry of the new partner, changes have been made to its governance with the purpose of separating the management from the ownership of the company.

Martínez Nieto S.A. boasts one of the most advanced production facilities in Europe with a total area of 23,500 m2, and a large team of 220 employees, enabling the marketing of over 400 natural products in 70 countries from its headquarters in Cartagena.
