I would say that I prefer and need change and variety. Change is motivating, stimulating, and energizing. I look for new options, challenges, assignments, relationships, acquaintances, and even new career in new places. I tire of sameness, repetition, and routine even in activities that were interesting at the start. Once things become routine, this become a motivation to move on to more interesting things.

I recommend Francesco who has long term vision, methodology, negotiation skills & versatility. In particular he is an outstanding “communicator”. He demonstrates a strong verbal and written ability to communicate internally and externally, in a team or with customers. I worked with Francesco from years and even in complex and adverse situations he is always relaxed, unperturbed and patient, capable to think the best way to overcome the hurdle. He likes innovation and he’s always the first one to test new stuff!

Managing Partner - Scotwork Italia srl

I have known Francesco Tamburrino for the past year while he worked as an Account Supervisor in the sales department at Eastman Chemical Company. I have been consistently impressed by both Francesco's attitude towards his work and his performance on the job. He always had a very professional and consistent approach in his assignments. His interpersonal and communication skills have allowed him to develop productive working relationships with both our clients and staff. Francesco has the listening and interviewing skills necessary to extract information from our clientele while performing financial assessments. Francesco possesses solid writing skills which have enabled him to compose quality correspondence. He also has the analytical skills to diagnose problems and devise viable solutions. His ability to remain unflustered during frenzied periods proves his ability to work well under pressure. I recommend him for employment without reservations.
