It takes time to analyze, test and validate ideas and not confuse facts with words It takes guts to be exposed and to say thousand of no's for every yes But only after all this, I do sign my work. I have an international background that encompasses living and working in Italy, France, Switzerland and Japan. I hold a Master of Science from the Milan Polytechnic and went on to specialize in Business Management, Strategy and Marketing (SDA Bocconi, INSEAD). Throughout my career, which began in 1998, I have held several management functions in international BtoB companies and have significant experience in Sales, Business Development, Key Account Management, Licensing, Technology Scouting, Scientific & Regulatory Affairs and Marketing. Member of Vitafoods Europe Conference Executive Advisory Board, the editorial board of Nutracos as well as member of SICC (Italian Society of Chemistry and Cosmetology), I have won multiple awards over the course of my career for my communication activities. As a strong advocate of effective international strategies, I speak four languages and I am deeply convinced of the importance of understanding local cultures and communities for the development of company strategy.
