I developed and executed digital campaigns, represented the agency at events, and spearheaded initiatives such as the Programmatic Ad Platform and Reporting Platform.

Head of Online and Deputy Marketing Director, Interdiscount, Microspot
During my tenure from January to October 2019 in Zurich, CH, I advised Coop on digital transformation, e-commerce, and retail growth strategies.

I also established regular communications between key stakeholders and executive management.

Co-Founder & Managing Partner, Zebra Advertisement
From August 2011 to January 2018 in Parma, Italy, and Miami, USA, I managed global, cross-functional teams and advised clients on experience platforms, digital transformation, and performance marketing.
