We anticipate change, facilitate transition

We have flanked companies and managers in the North East since the strong growth seen in the 1980s. After the end of the Cold War we accompanied them in the conquest of international markets. At the turn of the new millennium, we helped them seize the opportunities and face the challenges of globalisation and the single currency, and together withstood the impact of the global financial crisis.

With the same foresight, dynamism and passion as always, today we continue to support companies and executives in coping with the acceleration brought about by the pandemic and new geopolitical scenarios and in seizing the opportunities of digitisation, sustainability and inclusion.

Different clients,
one goal

Covering the whole of the new Italian industrial triangle (Lombardy, Triveneto and Emilia Romagna), we have worked with all kinds of organisations: from small and large entrepreneurial companies to listed multinationals, from private equity funds to family offices, from public bodies to non-profit organisations.

Our goal is to lead clients to long-term success by ensuring the best choice of candidates for their companies.

From North East Italy to the rest of the world

Firm roots to look far ahead: our companies belong to the North East but move on a global scale. This is why we accompany companies and executives on their internationalisation projects, carrying out a great many searches in the rest of Italy and abroad.

Active on a global scale, we are the only Italian partner of Penrhyn, one of the main global networks of independent Executive Search firms, present worldwide with 45 offices.

We unlock the growth potential of organisations and people

Marco Di Falco

Chairman and Chief Executive Officer

Born in Treviso in 1981. After completing his classical studies, he graduated in Law cum laude from Bocconi University in 2003. Between 2003 and 2005 he worked in Milan at the law firms Gianni Origoni Grippo & Partners and Lombardi Molinari e Associati, dealing mainly with M&A.

In 2005 he joined McKinsey & Company, where he remained until 2013 assisting Italian and foreign clients operating in very different sectors and contexts. 

From 2007 to 2009 he was in Boston, where he obtained an MBA from Harvard Business School.

In 2013 he joined Coesia, a multinational company based in Bologna and a world excellence in packaging machinery, where he took responsibility for the Group’s Business Development and Strategic Planning. In this role he was to lead the M&A team, completing acquisition and divestment transactions with Italian and foreign counterparts, industrial investors and private equity funds. He also supported the senior management of Group companies in the strategic and operational development of their respective businesses.

In 2016, he co-founded EasyCoop, the food e-commerce business developed with Coop Alleanza 3.0. As Chief Operating Officer he had responsibilities spanning operations, sales and finance and control, contributing decisively to the development of one of the most innovative food e-commerce companies in Europe.

Over the years, he has advised leading Italian and foreign private equity funds, especially in the industrial sector and within the sphere of M&A transactions.

In 2021 he acquired Dotto Research and took over its leadership.

In 2023 he was elected member of the Board of Directors and Vice Chair of Penrhyn, one of the main global networks of independent Executive Search firms, present worldwide with 45 offices.

A profile with an international outlook but strongly rooted in the North East of Italy, he follows selected executive search and consultancy assignments, placing at the service of entrepreneurs and managers a background that combines experience in advisory, direct management and extraordinary transactions.

Passionate about various sports (including spearfishing, skiing, tennis, trekking), he was above all else a member of the youth selections of Benetton Rugby and the Italian national rugby team, with which he participated in the U19 World Cup. And it is precisely in the course of his life as a sportsman that his great passion for people, their individual and collective development, and the awareness of how crucial the role of the team is for the success of the individual, and vice versa, have grown.
