I'm a manager at IBM Italy since 2007. I joined this company in 1999 and I covered several technical roles. I realized at that time that IBM is a huge company, helping me to understand that I was strong not only on technical challenges, but also able to effectively deal with multiple people covering several different roles. An extraordinary team player. I was recognized at that time as leader, and this brought me into a management position with people responsibility. People are my main motivation today, nothing is achievable without them.
Joined IBM immediately after college as software developer. A few years of experience as designer and developer of product installers using native technologies on Linux, Windows, AIX, Sun Solaris, HP-UX, SGI, z/OS. Long experience in developing and designing client-server applications and web applications. Great ability in leading geographically distributed team covering the whole software lifecycle development: development, test, customer support .
