MY SKILLS

Builder-from-scratch

Strongly focused on the targets, I learned how to make ideas become reality. As one of the pioneers in the Italian ebook scene, I helped my company to become a top player, with 250,000 titles in catalog from all over the world.

A-to-Z Troubleshooter

With a sheer analytical approach, I'm able to take care of all the operating needs of a company: creating business plans and business models, but also defining and reviewing commercial and legal agreements, and assessing technical papers.

Top-tier negotiator

Based on a transparent and shared representation of respective goals, my negotiation skills allowed me to define win-win agreements with some of the largest companies in the verticals I worked in.
