ABOUT US: THE TEAM

President

Pasquale Testa

“I strongly believe in Change management and those who know me know that I’ve never relaxed in carrying out any of the tasks necessary to reach the goal.”

22 years with CIO, 8 in the TLC, and 13 in RETAIL and wholesale for several brands such as Camomilla Italia, Alcott, Gutteridge, Frankie Morello Milano. For over a year in large-scale distribution (or MMR – Mass Market Retailers) with Sole365.

My career began as a trainer for IT courses, then a programmer in various fields, then as a system administrator and EDP (Electronic Data Processing) manager.
The passion for IT and automation prompted me to often change my area of expertise to broaden my knowledge; moreover I am specialized in simplifying infrastructures, and therefore costs, with particular attention to the analysis of business processes.

Qualified by the MISE (Ministry of Economic Development) as an Innovation Manager.
