It has been a long journey, always in the same industry, powered by a great passion for the product and from great commercial feeling by Technical Consumer Goods. In the beginning, my engagement was in sales but, a few years later, I had the opportunity to participate at the Auchan start-up in Italy, in the HQ, as responsible for the Technical Consumer Goods purchasing office.
These were eleven fantastic years, in which I received much knowledge, even at the human and professional experiences. This kind of experience allowed me to learn a lot and grow.
I joined Expert Italy, as commercial director of the Group, at the beginning of 2001. At that time the CEO of Expert in Italy was Carlo Alberto Lasagna. Together with him, I continued my professional growth; he has been a great master. In 2014 the board of directors of Expert Italy nominated me as CEO and on May 15th of the same year, I had the honor to be appointed as a board member of Expert International.
