Could you tell me about yourself and describe your background?
My name is Andrea Catania, I am 42 years old and I was born in Monza. I am happily married and proud father of a three years old boy and of a girl just one month old. No great amount of time to relax with two little children to take care of, but very satisfied of my life!
After high school, I graduated in Management Engineering in 2006 at Politecnico di Milano. I started my career with a two-year experience in an aluminum extrusion multinational company; I covered logistics and technical roles in line with my university education.
After a first successful sales experience in 2009-2010 in an insurance company, I decided to join a material testing machines manufacture as Sales Manager for 5 years.
During that period (2010-2015), I realized that sales activity was my path to follow. Sales is the activity that brings me satisfaction and makes me happy.
I spent a very excited experience in sales, in a rubber belts company from October 2015 to January 2022. During those years, I enlarged my life vision by travelling worldwide, meeting different people of different sectors such as woodworking, metalworking, paper industry and electric cable industry. Thanks to this experience, I learned to prioritize customer’s needs. By accumulating experience, I realized the importance of active listening and empathy. These aspects are essential to fulfill customer’s needs at best.
After a year of experience in 2022 as an Export Manager, in a company involved in metalworking, more precisely on sheet metal bending and welding solutions, I received OMMA proposal in February 2023 and I decided to join the team with enthusiasm .
