What was your first thought when you heard your name announced?
To be honest, when MET Italia’s CEO Giuseppe Rebuzzini was called on stage, I started to think that it could be me. When I heard my name, I immediately started thinking about something to say, but I guess my surprise was clearly visible on my face.
What do you think is your greatest professional achievement?
2022 was difficult, the credit risk was at an all-time high, but we adapted to the challenging environment and managed to find opportunities. However, I am not an easy person to satisfy, I prefer thinking that the best is yet to come.
Where do you see MET Group – and yourself – in five years?
It has been a long journey in the past five years for MET Italia, starting from scratch in the retail market. I wish we could keep growing and I hope that the whole MET Group will play a relevant role throughout Europe also in the retail sector.
How do you ‘recharge batteries’ outside working hours?
I take a break from the fast-paced life of a CFO – sometimes going to a gourmet restaurant with my wife, or buying a plane ticket to somewhere far away. I am a wine lover, and I love spending the weekends walking around vineyards and cellars in search of something yet to be tried.
