Consultants team

Partner - Paris, Milan

Francesca Antonini

With a background as a Latin Philologist and 15 years in HR Consulting as a People Development Expert, after a “breathing” moment and a study in Mindfulness, I acquired some more self-awareness, and I am convinced that individual and collective self-awareness is key also for business success.

Partner - Milan

Paola Ballabio

As a professional I have lived two lives, one succeeding the other over time. Yet, in some ways, they coexist. For the first 15 years of my career, I consulted on organisational themes (designing of organisational layout,  defining job descriptions, analysing processes and work loads), change management, culture and climate analysis, designing of Human Resources systems.

I moved to London when I was 20 to study, now I have spent just as many years living in London and I still have not yet stopped learning.

Partner - Milan

Gianfranco Gennaro

After 25 years mostly as a Human Resources Director for important companies and working on complex process of transformation, I think I realized why many transformation projects fail, projects based on the best intentions too, as well as the (few) correct things we should (absolutely) do right.

Partner - Milan

Massimo Lanzanò

This is my third consulting experience after just as many in an organization. It feels like two life experiences that have constantly added to each other. Today, it would be hard for me to work side by side with an HR Manager or a Management team if I hadn’t had that responsibility myself, if I hadn’t made certain mistakes, if I hadn’t had to deal with organizational politics.

Executive Consultant, L&D Expert - Milan

I aim at helping people learn the art of leadership… with respect. By leadership I do no not only mean the ability to lead people, but also the broader concept that encompasses every skill required to create transformation while working alongside other people.

Consultant - Milan

Milica Karić

After completing my studies in Social Anthropology and Political Science, I represented my country – Serbia – in a youth leadership development programme in Italy.

Consultant - Milan

Francesco Mazzer

I was – not too long ago – a Psychology student. Language and interactions have always caught my interest. At Awair, as part of the Consulting team, I often take part in assessment processes, but I also help organizations use the most suitable tools for them to identify talents with a keen eye for digital aspects.

Supporting team

Project Coordinator - Milan

Elisabetta Bonaventura

I’ve been working in a supporting role for about 15 years mostly in the consulting sector, I love being “behind the scenes”.

In Awair I am part of the Project Coordinator Team, a role I feel at ease with, like a comfortable second skin. You never get bored handling a consulting project: it is never the same, it always has different interesting challenges as it always entails juggling several tasks and processes at the same time. Have I mentioned that it is the perfect job for me?

In my free time, I keep myself very busy with activities that serve as creativity outlets: I teach English, I organize and entertain children parties with art-attack laboratories, I am a Shiatsu masseur, I hold reading sessions of the subconscious, I am passionate about oriental disciplines, Chinese in particular, and I love food. Would you believe I am an Excel enthusiast?

Project Coordinator - Milan

Marianna Gennaro

Awair is my first real job. From the administrative department I evolved into a fully-fledged Project Coordinator – or as our team is dubbed – Problem Solving Ninja!

With my job I love the variety of backgrounds and cultures of all the people with whom I come into contact with on a daily basis. Awair not only opened my eyes to the HR world, but it also made me so passionate about it that I decided to study for a psychology degree.

When I am not in the office, I enjoy traveling, photography and I am an enthusiastic Instagrammer. H.C. Bresson – my guru – said “To photograph: it is to put the head, the eye and the heart at the same line of sight.” You don’t need any fancy equipment to move people through pictures, as for example I am a street photographer with my smartphone.

Marketing and Communications Manager - Milan

Giuliana Mason

I have been spending my entire professional life in the company of words. Oddly enough, it started out with numbers within the Economic Research Department of an important international bank. It is with this leap to a multinational strategic consulting firm that I got introduced to corporate communications where I immediately recognized my comfort zone (please, help me understand this: is it a good or bad thing?). Here I flourished: internal communications, events, CRM, presentations, books, articles, editing, ghost-writing, sometimes crookedly and then a breakneck speed till I joined Awair in 2017 as Marketing and Communications Manager. As soon as I started, I felt a lot of energy and a sense of freedom which I had not felt since school trips but with much, much, much more to do.

Today, I am moved when someone says “Awair? Of course, I follow you…”, when I touch (touch!) an odorous 30-page catalogue, when I see, the work of 2 intense weeks burn in 2 beautiful hours. I enjoy everything that has to do with any of the 5 senses, taste and vision primarily. Special mention for bright smiles and field flowers.

Marketing and Communications Coordinator - Milan

Giulia Sacchi

Before Awair, just after completing my academic studies, I first worked as a freelance translator and then for a small Italian NGO where I used to deal mostly with fundraising, donor liaisons as well as online communications.

In Awair I am part of the Marketing and Communications team. Here, I can fiddle around with some graphics software, content management platforms and analytics tools. I like this job as I have the opportunity to experiment with different approaches, evaluate the results and then adjust the solutions.

In general, I am passionate about many things (maybe too many), off the top of my head: losing myself while travelling, baking and experimenting with preparations – not always with brilliant results, but at least I like to try my hand. And swimming, water is certainly my element.

Administration Manager - Milan

Paola Vergani

After completing secondary school, I enrolled at university, but I soon dropped out to work in the family company first, subsequently in a travel agency specialized in living abroad to learn foreign languages, and lastly, I landed a position at Awair.

I have always handled the administrative area of business, something I have always been keen on since high school, all along my journey.

I am a bit of a restless spirit and for this reason I tried my hand at several activities: a variety of sport disciplines, singing and dancing. I love cinema, theatre, musicals and literature, especially detective stories!

Administration Officer - Milan

Marco Vincenzi

Before job-hunting, I temporarily joined the Navy where I used to follow rules and procedures always with a smile on my face. Back at home, as soon as I could, I quit every odd job I had and started working in the administration office of a small construction company. With this company I learnt everything I know today, in a very real sense.

Apparently, following rules and procedures as well as meeting deadlines are some of my strongest characteristics. Awair chose me for who I am: someone who doesn’t miss any detail.

In my spare time, I enjoy hanging out with friends, planning trips, going to theater and cinema, but most of all I love good food.
