Giovambattista Marino

Extremely smart, capable to take risk but needs to be assessed, analytical to the bone carlo is able to assess the situation and how to solv ... e a problem. He has a solid background in strategic consulting providing him all the skills he needs to be able to judge and analyse. Having said that he knows that taking risk is necessary and he does take them. Very hard worker it will not let people down. Moreover he understand finance and economics, which give a boost to his profile!
Ibsen Costa Manso
We worked together  •  Chefe de Produção Nacional, Rede Globo.
Carlo is simply a brilliant professional. He worked for years as a senior consultant at BCG and at financial market. So it has much more tha ... n all the conditions necessary to conduct their own business, which actually already have a family tradition of decades in Italy and has just been reinvented in Brazil. His initiative has already achieved huge success with great repercussion in the local and international media.
Fábio Daneluzzi
We worked together  •  Analista de eficiência, Itaú Unibanco.
Carlo os one of the best professional I have ever worked with. He is extremely intelligent, ethical, and focused on achieving sustainable re ... sults, and his entrepreneur "soul" was evident even while working in projects inside a Large Company. Definitely a strong entrepreuner.
Filippo Carone
They're my school  •  Head of Product Development (XDM Suite), FIS.
I spent a significant piece of my time with Carlo, we have been through several challenges. What I clearly remember is grit. When Carlo is ... chasing a goal, there is literally nothing that can stop him from getting it. This is mixed with the powerful nexus of a strong engineering background based on the foundations of classical studies. Testifying Carlo's capabilities is his knowledge of 5 different languages he speaks fluently.
Jonathan Zetlaoui
We worked together  •  Chief Marketing Officer at Take Eat Easy. 10+ years international experience in marketing/product gained in e-commerce and consulting
Great combination of strategic mindset and ability to get his hands dirty and get things done
Marie Helene Ben Samoun
We worked together  •  Controlling, Carrefour.
Carlo has both intellectual horse power, pragmatism and very high tenacity. He has been a real entrepreneur for a year and half now and has ... already accomplished a ton! Open a store that he completely refurbished, run a small furniture plant, develop a team of 15 people and develop his commercial network. I am very supportive of Carlo and a true admirer.
Juliana G. Bezerra
They're my friends  •  Senior Project Leader | Compliance & Public Affairs, Rubens Naves Santos Jr Advogados.
He makes it happen, that's it. (And has loads of fun along the process.)
Audrey Bernardo
They're my friends  •  Senior Associate, Opera Solutions. Massachusetts Institute of Technology grad. Stanford grad.
In terms of sheer intelligence, Carlo has incredible raw horsepower that is rare even at top consulting firms. Paired with his perfectly suc ... cint and persuasive communication skills, he is an amazing professional. These skills enabled him to be the youngest project leader at BCG in Latin America and the right-hand of the CEO at Votarantim. Now that he is doing something he is truly passionate about - something that is in his family blood - I see an even greater level of creativity and tenaciousness. I have no doubt he and Acierno will be a tremendous success.
Marco Crespo
We worked together  •  Board Member, Instituto Ayrton Senna. Harvard Business School grad.
Super smart and analytical! Carlo has the cababilities, talent and network to grow his business.
Julien Psauté
We worked together  •  Principal, BCG.
Incredible drive Able to generate a vision that will make his team dream Perfectionist with a real focus to added value to the customers Nev ... er takes no as an answer

Lots of drive, passion, super smart and easy to relate to.

We worked together  •  Founder and President, The Planorama Group.
Carlo is a very analytical, driven entrepreneur. He knows what he wants and will do everything to get there!
Raphael Fanti
We worked together  •  Innovation Manager, Entre-Prises Climbing walls.
Carlo is a genius, that goes without saying. What differentiates him however is his inter personal skills and charisma!
Stanislas Leveau-Vallier
We worked together  •  Co Founder, ThankYouChef.
I first met Carlo when we worked together as consultants. He made a big impression on me because I found him to have exceptionnal energy and ... vision, two qualities that are fundamental to drive projects. On top of that I was amazed at his capacity to create great relationships with clients and partners, and I myeslf enjoyed very much working with Carlo - he is fun, smart, has great culture and great taste. He became a friend. Carlo is a great entrepreneur because he can get people to enjoy working with him and help him drive a project to its full potential.

Arnaud Guérin
We worked together  •  Systems and Equipments Integration Division, General Manager, AREVA.
Arnaud's training as a Centreline - and then the years at the Boston Consulting Group - provided him an amazing latitude of skills, ranging ... from solid analytics to interpersonal/communication and management flexibility.

Mathieu Frison
They're my friends  •  CMO Brazil, Verisure Securitas Direct.
As an advisor, Mathieu already dealt with very complex organisations in his BCG years - then was the key responsible for transforming a lots ... -of-enthusiasm-and-total-lack-of-structure start up into a proper, successful company, before moving on to senior roles in corporate environments.

Filippo Carone
They're my school  •  Head of Product Development (XDM Suite), FIS.
Filippo is one of those very uncommon profiles that manage to combine and balance a very, very strong set of tech knowledge/skills with a br ... oad range of soft skills related to people and issue management: you hardly ever get those two in the same human being. So he can be a precious advisor that understands both technical struggles AND the human factor behind them.

Julien Psauté
We worked together  •  Principal, BCG.
Because it's precisely what he does for a living - he's an experienced strategy consultant with both strong analytics and a broad sense of p ... olitics and dynamics, which means he can read (and forecast) organisations and their challenges in a wide range of sectors and contexts.

Stanislas Leveau-Vallier
Co Founder, ThankYouChef.
A great entrepreneur is most of all a dreamer - someone that does not take current reality as an unquestionable fact and decides to change i ... t just because it would be better in a different way. And that's sort of a word by word description of how Stan faces life.
