Based in Milan, Marco brings with him more than 10 years of experience supporting financial institutions on strategic topics with focus on digital transformation and use of advanced analytics in credit management and commercial effectiveness.

His most important attribute, apart from knowledge and expertise in a particular area, is that of resident problem solver.

Being a consultant means facing problems and define how to solve them. Leveraging the experience I developed over time I support team and clients in to sort out problems and figure out how to deal with them. It is crucial to look at the issue from a variety of perspectives and add creativity to generate set of alternatives, and then combine them in a pragmatic way.

Father to two girls, he has found parenthood a transformative experience. “Became a father changed my life: parenthood still came as a surprise and I fell in love with my little baby the moment I clapped eyes on her (and this feeling further grew when her sister arrived)”,says Marco. “Becoming a father lit a “fire” to push harder and to achieve my targets to be for them a model and contribute to build a better world, at the same time the need to better balance work and personal life.

Marco, who holds degrees in economics and finance, knew early on he wanted to work in financial services. “I have always been fascinated by importance in our economy of financial markets and by the complexity of financial services, however it was not clear to me what kind of job I wanted to do,” he says.  His work at Oliver Wyman has given him the opportunity to see the workings of financial institutions from the outside, and allowed him to grow professionally and personally. “I’ve met amazing colleagues and clients with different cultures from all over the world, work in three continents and making lots of friends along this journey.” 

His advice to young people entering the discipline: “Be curious. Our objective is to generate breakthrough impact for our client, and you can do it only going beyond the surface and the status quo by asking question, studying and challenging how things are done”.
