Roberto Borghetti: I expect MET Group to play a strategic role in the energy industry

January 16, 2024
“My greatest achievement is probably leaving the comfort zone of a position I knew really well, being always hungry to do better,” says Roberto Borghetti, Head of Gas Asset Optimization at MET International, who recently received the MET Excellence Award for his outstanding performance in 2023.

What was your first thought when you heard your name announced as one of the winners of the 2023 MET Excellence Awards?

It would be really poetic claiming I had flashbacks of my career and private life, especially in 2022. Actually, I clearly remember I was very calm and just focused on the moment. The first real thought was about the people important to me, unfortunately there was space to publicly thank just a few of them.

What do you think is your greatest professional achievement?

I am aware that reaching a significant gross margin with the gas storage portfolio in Germany is an outstanding result and I am definitely proud of it. Nevertheless, nothing happened in a day, it is the outcome of an intense and relentless learning process. My greatest achievement is probably leaving the comfort zone of a position I knew really well, taking a new challenge with trading, committing to it and being always hungry to do better.

Where do you see MET Group – and yourself – in five years?

MET Group achieved a lot in the past years and holds the potential to grow much more in the near future. I expect MET will play a strategic role in the energy industry. It won’t be easy, further focus and sustainable operations are necessary to get there. I see myself highly contributing to business targets and playing a key role in the growth of the company.

How do you ‘recharge batteries’ outside working hours?

I like travelling, visiting art exhibitions, reading, and dedicating time to sport.
