I'm a food technologist with a significant experience - gained both abroad and in Italy - in a number of food and beverage sectors: milk, cheese, meat and coffee.

In addition, I also have a considerable know-how about food packaging as I worked for 5 years in a packaging company.

I have always been performing key roles - Technical Director, Plant Manager, Quality Manager - in the following departments: Production, Quality Control, Research & Development.

Several experiences have allowed me to see different sides of the business process, appreciating the different faces of the same problem.
I think my strength is the ability to learn new things quickly and I am very good at adapting to change in any situation.

I believe in Teamwork and the strength it can generate by working for goals.

I joined Kaizen's philosophy and believe in continuous improvement through optimizing organization and processes by eliminating waste. I love analysing problem with numbers and facts because across the Lean six-sigma Black Belt certification I understood the power of statistics.

In my opinion, a company that wants to express itself at the highest levels should not only try to increase its margins through cost cutting, but also try to implement strategies that ultimately aim at customer satisfaction by making the right product with the fair price, at the right time.

My favourite quote is: "Impossible is nothing"
