Good luck, @diegopia !

Interesting news yesterday: Amazon’s VP for International, Diego Piacentini, will take two years leave of absence to head the Digital Technology Office of the Italian Government.

I had the good fortune of meeting mr. Piacentini back in the ’90s when I had Amazon as a Client: a very capable manager with profound understanding of Digital.

IMHO a great coup for the Government, and no doubt a daunting challenge for him, as he is asked to tame the fearsome tiger of the resistance to change that is so ingrained in the Italian economic business system.

I am sure his leadership will unite the energies towards the common goal of taking Italy into this century.
