” I have hired Nicola and worked with him from 2010 – 2016 in his capacity as Managing Director (Ammistratore Delegato) of HSE24 S.p.A, Rome. I was/am Chairman of the sole shareholder of HSE24. The board of directors (CdA) selected Nicola due to his experience in starting up a teleshopping channel earlier in his career and due to the trust that he enjoyed from other board members. We are looking back at the six years of his leadership in the startup situation of HSE24 with gratefulness for his efforts and his leadership in what was not always an easy path to follow. In the initial phase of HSE24 we relied on Nicola to hire the right team (up to an organisation of more than 200 people), to structure and negotiate the main TV distribution contracts, call center outsourcing and logistics agreements etc. After some time we took the step forward to build a professional full TV production site in Rome and are thankful to Nicola for delivering this build-out in time and budget at a very professional level. Nicola was always a very respected leader of our business in Italy, internally and externally, and we are glad he has helped us build the business over the first six years of its existence.
