Managing Director, DHL Global Forwarding Italy
Born in Bari , Italy in 1961 , I started my carrier in the logistic forwarding industry in 1980 as blue collar . In 1984 hired in Zust Ambrosetti SPA in Bari in the export / import department as documents handling clerk and in 1991 in Danzas Bari .
I moved to Milano HO in 2000 for a special assignment as Country Integration Manager during the integration of Danzas and AEI International. This was one of the cornerstone of my carrier , working on integration and merge actively , gave me the chance to enhance my leadership and knowledge. It was a great experience because it was needed a good balance between business and human behavior, especially during a transformation and change like an integration and merge of two different companies and cultures.
I returned back to Bari taking my role of Branch Manager and in the following year I was also appointed as branch Manager in Naples. In 2007 I moved again to Milano taking over the role of VP of Airfreight Italy , in 2012 COO DGF Italy and in 2013 Managing Director.
Please find attached my CV with all relevant information including courses attended.
During my carrier I went trough different internal and external leadership courses , and various assessments.
For my participation to TELP in 2012 I completed the Hogan Development Survey and the FIRO business assessment.
