—————— HOW LONG HAVE YOU BEEN PART OF SITMA?
Since September 2nd, 2019
—————— What did you study?
After studying industrial chemistry at a technical high school, I graduated from university in Chemical Engineering, gained the professional qualifications to practice, and attended an executive Master’s in Business Administration.
—————— What do you do at Sitma?
I’m the Consulting Service Manager. My role is to introduce integrated and advanced services aimed at improving the performance of the installed lines and systems.
—————— What is the most stimulating part of your job? What is your contribution to Stima?
For me it’s a new world: discovering markets and customers with which to establish professional relationships, plus the “challenge” of filling a new role that has to be built and integrated into the company. I bring many years of experience working with customers and in contact with the market. This has helped me better understand specific needs and the best way to deal with problems. I also bring enthusiasm and determination.
—————— What is your connection to the company? What values do you share, and which should be the company’s focus?
I found a company that has a long history, but that is ready to question and reinvent itself, accepting the challenges that the market — and the world — pose. I believe deeply in all of Sitma’s values, but I am convinced that competence and passion can make the difference in achieving results.
—————— What do you do in your spare time?
In addition to spending time with my family and friends (waiting for Covid-19 to pass), I read, watch movies on TV, and play sports (running and volleyball).
—————— How would you describe yourself? Do you have a motto, and if so, what?
I am a positive, determined and empathetic person. I try to face every day with a smile, for myself and the people around me. One of my favorite phrases is from Albert Einstein: “Imagination is more important than knowledge.”
—————— The big question of the moment is Covid-19 and Sitma: What has changed? What challenges did you face, and how did you face them? Is there a positive side to the situation?
Apart from the masks and the physical distance from colleagues, Covid has forced us to rethink some activities and the ways in which they were carried out. It exposed digital weaknesses (if any) and the need to learn how to take care of our customers from a distance. The biggest challenge was getting started, finding an effective method and balance that would allow us to perform at our best. This was really an opportunity to rethink the way we share information and make company know-how available in an effective and simple way, using the technologies at our disposal. Can you imagine the same situation without effective sharing and communication tools?
