History

Challenges, Successes, and Passion

It’s been an unfolding of events marked by challenges, courageous choices and some daring moves. A helter-skelter ride that has called for unwavering commitment and absolute dedication, intelligence, vigilance and sometimes, discretion and patience.

“Whatever the situation, the journey has been thrilling and rewarding. The milestones of our success.”
~ Corrado Reverberi
