    I am passionate about improving myself and acquiring new knowledge because we can only follow what we know. Every day we must strive to push ourselves and raise the bar.

    • Group Chief Financial Officer

      Always fascinated by maths and logic, Gianluca studied Economics before working as a scholarship holder in Applied Mathematics in Turin and Milan. His plan was to become a university professor, but he changed tact by honing his craft working in finance for various chemical and mechanical engineering global companies. He joined Deltatre in Turin, Italy, in 2003. 

      Creativity, says Gianluca, is essential to his role as Group Chief Finance Director. “Some people think finance can be boring,” he says, “but it’s my passion, and I believe I am a creative person.” His role involves overseeing finance, procurement, and legal departments within the business – something he believes would not be possible without finding innovative ways to respond to unique situations. 

      And it shows, as Gianluca has witnessed and led many changes since he joined Deltatre. His role is essential to the success of the company – and it’s evolved from adding rigour to internal structures to now leading the finance department of a 1,000 employee-strong global company.

      “I’ve worked with Deltatre for a long time, but the reality is, it’s not felt like working within one company,” he says. “The environment changes so much, which is something I really enjoy.” This unfaltering change at the heart of the company not only enables Gianluca to find creative approaches to new problems, but also helps to quench his thirst for knowledge.

      “I am passionate about improving myself and acquiring new knowledge because we can only follow what we know,” he says. “Every day we must strive to push ourselves and raise the bar.” 

      For Gianluca, results can only be achieved through fostering a strong team – something he considers one of his proudest achievements at Deltatre. “Each of them have brought so much to the company and have grown so much. They bring so much value every day,” he says. 

      Outside of work, Gianluca enjoys hiking and spending time in the countryside or seaside. “I’m not an urban person,” he says. “I need fresh air to clear my mind.”
