Fabrizio Cardinali, Giunti Labs’ CEO, commented: “These appointments will help Giunti Labs to move to the next level – as a worldwide learning and knowledge management technology provider.
“In recent months, Giunti Labs has opened new offices – in Sweden and in Australia – and established a wholly-owned subsidiary in the UK in the light of some excellent trading results in the UK in 2007. We have further plans for international growth and both Andrea and Paolo have much to contribute as this further expansion takes place.”
