Within the context of our established firm, I get to thrive in an environment that encourages debate and creativity. I get to shape our business and carve out my own space, focusing on the challenges I’m truly passionate about."

A TEAM YOU CAN RELY ON
In late February, my wife and I learned that our second baby would be arriving early. Although I had planned ahead for a leisurely transition off my project in mid-March, clearly the baby had other plans. When we talk about “family first” values here at AlixPartners, we really mean it. The team and my MD rallied to support me during a very rapid (one week) transition – making sure the client work would continue on pace while I turned my focus to the delivery. Our baby arrived three days later, and the firm’s family leave policy provided me with much needed time to get my wife back to health and find a new routine for our now family of four.

After six years inside a global, publicly traded corporation and 15 years in management consulting, I was looking for a role where I could help build an industry practice. I also wanted to be more focused on performance improvement projects in special situations, with a more practical, hands-on and results-oriented approach. At AlixPartners I found a fantastic family feeling, strong collaboration, and a unique and distinctive consulting model: Senior, small teams working together with our client to obtain concrete improvements.
As an Italian, I value the fact that the firm appreciates that we generally take a more creative and less structured approach to organizing the work – allowing us to manage and solve complex situations in a flexible manner. Since my very first project at AlixPartners – which turned into a multi-year advisory due to the good value creation we added – I’ve welcomed many opportunities to partner on projects and share knowledge with our global teams.
