He began his career in 1991 in his family’s company (Pharma Logistics Group), of which he took care, in particular, of its development at an international level, which was sold in 2004 to the Exel Group, subsequently absorbed by the DHL Group.

Headquartered in New York, with 35 offices worldwide and approximately 2100 employees, Aurora is a private, independent, employee-controlled investment company with assets under management of approximately $340 billion.
We are proud that these prestigious partners have chosen PHSE and shared its values, ideas and plans to enhance the company’s ambitions.
PHSE will continue to be an independent operator, specialised in temperature-controlled transportation, and will maintain management and operational autonomy: nothing will change in the organisational structure and key roles, which will all be 100% confirmed.
PHSE will continue, as the only operator on the Italian market, to rely exclusively on its own personnel and means which allow us, together with the continuous IT development, to guarantee an excellent service, a high level of quality and high reliability.
Our mission will be to make PHSE the leading company in hospital pharmaceutical distribution and temperature-controlled home delivery and, in general, in the Pharma/Healthcare vertical (shipments by air, land, sea and special services – clinical trials and time critical).
