Francesco's goal is to help with the reconstruction of the Caribbean islands most hurt by the latest hurricanes by promoting the implementation of solar systems. Although small islands suffer the most climate change, have the potential to be great example in transitioin to a low-carbon economy. Francesco transitioned into the clean energy industry because he sincerely cares about the environment, the planet and its future generations. Before transitioning, Francesco built up his experience over 9 years across several industries – technology, consumer, services and market research. He specializes in business development with a strong track record of increasing revenue and building territorial value. Prior to Ecogy Solar and Solarando, Francesco held roles at multinational such as Hewlett & Packard and Euromonitor International gaining skill sets like account management, new deals, profitability growth and project management.

He holds an MBA from Eserp University of Barcelona (Spain) which he attended on a European Parliament scholarship, and a BA (honors) from the university of Bari (Italy).
