  1. What does your role entail?

I’m responsible for new innovations and developments within our waste shredding division.

Cittadella in Italy – it’s a really beautiful town.

Without doubt, the XR-series! The XR is a very strong, compact machine, with a modular, flexible construction that can achieve an optimum shred with so many customer applications.

I do a lot of sport, like mountaineering, ski-touring and running.

A fishing rod, so I’d hopefully have fresh fish to eat every day.
