Alessandro has always played football and comparisons between the challenges and playing methods of that sport and his work at Stratema come easy to him. Any talk of team play and winning mentality may easily turn into cliché, but nonetheless reflects reality. Team play is important at Stratema. The same goes for the willingness to win (or rather to complete a transaction that all parties are satisfied with). Moreover, like in football, all «players» at Stratema play different roles, but are equally important to its overall success. It was when studying at Università Bocconi in Milan that he became curious about M&A, and this led to him being hired by the investment bank UniCredit in New York in 2017. Alessandro is very sociable and loves meeting new people, and he therefore has an ever-expanding contact network. He is quite fearless and thinks nothing of picking up the phone to get someone to become enthusiastic about doing business with Stratema. When not working, he exercises. And he likes to head for warmer climes when the opportunity arises.
