“Having always worked in the Human Resources sector, I have always thought that my work helped to develop a sustainable labor market attentive to human needs.

“Working first in Italy, immediately after the approval of the law on temporary work, and then in Gi Group in the development of the business on a national and then international level, I was able to create new teams, accepting new challenges and managing new projects. It was and still is an experience where I got a lot from many people, working in many countries around the world. But I also believe that I have given my added value in tackling challenging projects, in building and consolidating teams of managers destined to gather the best of the market, teaching them that following already traveled paths could have been easier but it would not have led us to the best result, accepting the challenge of tracing new paths.”
“Gi Group Holding represents an incredible professional journey. An almost all-encompassing experience at times. Choosing this company has had a profound impact on my life as a manager and as a man. Just as Gi asks me to be ready to face the new challenges of the Group and the market, so I ask a lot of myself to try to be a better man every day. And in this continuous search for improvement the choices of man connect to the choices of manager.”
