It was last September 22 when, in an interview with Courier service, Ennio Doris – died at the age of 81 on November 24 – he explained that he would definitively leave the reins of Banca Mediolanum to his son Massimo Antonio Doris. I am 81 years old. A company the size of Banca Mediolanum requires a lot of attention. As an honorary president, I can still be useful, doing the things I like best and also dedicating myself to my family. I was lucky: you don’t often find a father who is succeeded by a son with the same characteristics. It happened to me, as it did to Maldini, to Mazzola. And that leaves me calm.
In reality, Doris the father had long since left the operational leadership of the bank to his eldest son Massimo Antonio, who has held the position of CEO of the Bank since 2008. Ennio Doris and his wife Lina Tombolato, married since 1966, have in fact had two children: Massimo Antonio and Annalisa Sara, both involved in the Bank’s future.
