For more than thirteen years I have been working in the pharmaceutical industry, in FDA approved sites, covering roles of increasing responsibility in the Quality, Manufacturing and New Product Introduction area. My experience is still growing within my domain. In a dynamic environment such as the pharmaceutical sector, I have improved and consolidated my technical knowledge and increased my managerial skills, switching from functional to matrix structures and multi-disciplinary teams either in mechanical or organic fields. I have matured within my leadership roles thanks to direct and indirect coordination of different teams throughout my professional experiences. I am strong with GMP, on aseptic environments and on the manufacturing operations management. I'm comfortable in multicultural and multinational environments, dealing daily with foreign customers. Solid knowledge of Project Management, applied to the technological transfer of new products including also the ability to perform budget forecast and cost estimates. Proven capabilities of Change Management, aimed at continuous improvement of processes in order to make them more efficient and obtain as a final result products with high quality standards. I have an excellent predisposition to changes and the tougher challenge that often I have to face it is not dealing with a new approach but the resistances that could be generated from it. I have learnt from experience that changing the mindset in a stable environment is not a trivial matter. I'm always open to new challenges and each new experience is a valuable opportunity to learn and continue to evolve professionally.

I am an expert of change management. One of the most important change carried out, has involved the introduction of disposable tools in the aseptic area. The result was an improvement that led to a reduction of production costs and time.
