Personal pitch

While embracing agility and boldness in my personal workload, I love collaborative working environments and I always encourage business simplification. This behaviour makes me a reliable colleague and a valuable employee, especially in a company that drives positive impacts for our planet and societies. Because my motivation mostly lies in finding sense in what I do as an individual and on what we can achieve as a team.
