We are delighted to announce that our CEO, Valerio Fonseca, has been awarded the title of CEO of the Year at the Le Fonti Innovation Awards®, in the Property Management category. “For skilfully guiding a company that specialises in shared rentals for students and young professionals since 2007. For continuously valuing the talent of human resources and placing importance in sharing and teamwork”: this is the reason why he was awarded this prestigious award.
The Le Fonti award, which is now in its eight year and was developed in partnership with the European Commission, is the Italian branch of the Iair Awards, the most prestigious group of international prizes for entrepreneurship in the world; every year, awards are handed out in London, New York, Dubai, Singapore and Hong Kong.
Former winners of the prize include – to name only a few – entrepreneurs and CEOs such as Brunello Cucinelli, Angelo Trocchia (the former CEO of Unilere and, today, Safilo) and Maximo Ibarra (who led Wind for 5 years and brought about its merger with 3).
“This recognition is an honour, one that I share with the entire work team: when my partner, William Maggio, and I started the dream that gave rise to this company eleven years ago, we knew that it had enormous potential for the future. But we could not have achieved this without a close-knit team and the passion that they all dedicate to their work on a daily basis. It fills me with great pride to lead this Company and this award will only encourage me to always do better: rather than an end point, I consider it as a launching pad for new things,” remarks Valerio.
