Pierfilippo has been managing people for close to 40 years. When he first ascended to a position of leadership back in 1980, a mentor told him something profound about his new roles and responsibilities: “One of your most important new obligations is to properly assess the people you want to hire, based on the tasks and goals you have and what you want to achieve in the short, mid, and long-term based on market evolution.” Today, Pierfilippo uses this piece of advice every time he starts an executive search.
Pierfilippo’s career in technology started at Honeywell in 1980. He quickly moved through the executive ranks at Apple, Sun Microsystems, and Siemens, eventually becoming CEO of Fujitsu Siemens Italy in 2000 and then CEO and Senior Vice President of Fujitsu Western Europe in 2007.
In 2011, Pierfilippo accepted the CEO position at Exprivia, a company listed on the STAR segment of Milan Stock Exchange and market leader in process consultancy, technology services, and IT solutions, and then at Ring Consulting in 2014.
Over the last 15 years, Pierfilippo has had the opportunity to manage several international organizations and to lead complex M&A, Restructuring, Change Management and Culture Change projects in the Netherlands, Belgium, France, Portugal, and Spain.
He also had the opportunity to influence Institutions in understanding how New Technologies and Digital Transformation can help them change the way they do business and behave with people and citizens.
