Nicola Romeo was an Italian engineer and an entrepreneur.
In 1905 he created "Ing. Nicola Romeo e Co.". The company manufactured machines and equipment for the mining industry. As the company became successful he wanted to expand and acquired a majority of Milan based car manufacturing company A.L.F.A. in 1915. Only three years later, in 1918, Romeo owned the whole company. A.L.F.A. was renamed to "Società Anonima Italiana Ing. Nicola Romeo". The company gained a good reputation, but in 1927 came very close to liquidation. These changes forced him to leave in 1928. https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nicola_Romeo
