Name: Marco Antonelli
Location: Anzio, Italy
Position: Project Manager Assistant
What do you do at ALPLA?
I am the assistant of the project manager here in Anzio. I support him in developing and finalising the project internally at the Anzio plant. This means that I receive information from the project manager and customers, and then I organize things like material and machine availability. I also organize the development of the product internally together with the planning manager, production manager and quality manager. I give support in order to successfully complete the project, and I share data and results of tests that we carry out at the plant with customers.
What is the most important device/tool for your work?
What is your biggest achievement to date – personal or professional?
In my private life, I am proud of what I have achieved in my sport. I do Judo and have a first-grade black belt. I’ve been learning judo since I was nine, so I can say that I’m an expert. I am proud of that.
Where is your favourite place on earth?
New Orleans. I love the city. I went there last summer. I love the music spirit of the city. It’s a typical southern US city – people from the South of the US are the best because they are extremely hospitable.
What do you find most interesting about working at ALPLA?
The dynamic. What I like most is the fact that I work with people from all over the world. I love to communicate with people from different cultures.
If Hollywood made a film about your life, who would you like to see cast as you?
I like the acting style of Leonardo DiCaprio.
You get one more hour a day: what are you going to use it for?
There are a lot of things I would like to do. For example learning a new language. I tried learning German but it was a bit difficult for me. I think some of the most-spoken languages in the world like Spanish or Chinese would be interesting.
What advice would you give to new employees?
Always do your best and give 100%.
