Expatriate from Italy to Malaysia since 1998, I've been working in real estate industry for the past 35 years. I hold a Master in Macroeconomy, a Master in Marketing and a PHD in Marketing and Mass Communication. Since 2007 I've been the CEO and co-founder of REI group of companies which acts as strategic partner for property developers, consultant for several government department and agencies. In the recent years, starting from 2011 I've been a public figure in real estate giving very frequent talks and seminars to young adults and first time home buyers trying to help them to understand better how to choose a home and how to proceed to its purchase. In 2016 I've published a book titled "Malaysian Propenomy: Why, Where, What and When in property investment" as a new way of looking into property development and investment through the lens of economic development and growth. I've also been a permanent columnist for several main stream and specialised publications such as The Star, NST, Nanyang, iProperty magazine, Property Hunter magazine and Property Insight magazine. I've a big passion about what I do and what we are in REI Group and above all in educating young talents during their journey to become business leaders.
