The late Nicolás Nardelli was 37 years old and was the son of Gustavo Nardelli, former manager of the Puerto Rosario Terminal (TPR) of the grain exporter Vicentín. His acquaintances remember him as “A nice, jovial and intelligent boy” and the news of his death caused astonishment among those close to him.
What grandson of one of the founders of the company, besides son and heir owned by one of the owners, he served for a time in an armchair on the board of directors of TPR and some other family businesses.
In fact, he was one of those who opposed the national government intervention plan in the company, and even held meetings with representatives of the Executive Power to dismantle the recovery of the company in this way.
This initiative had been promoted by the management of Alberto Fernández after the self-imploding signature after the series of unpayable loans granted by Banco Nación, under the presidency of Mauricio Macri. The Nardelli clan had been a contributor to the campaign that brought the leader of Together for Change to the Casa Rosada, in 2015.
His body was found in Campo Timbó, property that the Nardelli had acquired and where a golf course used to work. Although the causes of death are still being investigated, His relatives deny that he had “a potential suicidal profile”.
The Nardelli family had recently suffered the loss of Sergio, Nicolás’s uncle and Gustavo’s brother. They had also previously lost Esteban, Nicolás’s twin brother, in an accident. Sergio Nardelli was CEO and one of Vicentín’s main shareholders. In that capacity, he was the one who attended Olivos, in the company of Governor Omar Perotti, to meet with Alberto Fernández the same week that the company’s intervention had been announced. On August 12, 2020, he died at the age of 59. He was at his private home in the Santa Fe town of Reconquista when he suffered a heart attack, according to the family.
