Livio Colapinto

Quality, objectives and performances are my sweet & sour obsessions. When working as a consultant, my primary focus is understanding needs; then provide solutions; then implementing changes; then exceeding goals. Naturally born curious, I find relentless opportunities within my ever-evolving network of contacts. I am a forward-thinker and avid consumer of new experiences, challenges and knowledge. I enjoy being engaged and inspired by others and I like to aim at the big picture while constantly controlling relevant details.
