Chairman, EP World Catering Facility Management DMCC
I was born on August 12, 1973, in Naples, Italy. My upbringing was heavily influenced by my hardworking father, who served as a role model. Academic pursuits were never my forte, and I began working at the age of 16, managing one of Napoli’s largest bars. My modest academic performance stemmed from my inclination towards hands-on work over textbooks, reflecting my entrepreneurial spirit. However, I recognize the evolving importance of education in today’s world. I’ve been fortunate to contribute to our family business, EP, witnessing its growth and my personal development. Some noteworthy achievements and challenges include:
These milestones reflect a journey of growth, marked by both successes and setbacks, which have molded me into a better individual and entrepreneur. I eagerly anticipate the future, embracing it with an open mind and a commitment to learning from every experience
