Focus on quality: a talk with Gabriele Zeni
Let’s meet Gabriele Zeni, Effegidi Quality Department employee.
WILL YOU TELL US YOUR PROFESSIONAL EXPERIENCE, HOW YOU ARRIVED IN EFFEGIDI?
I started my training in a technical field by getting first a Bachelor Degree and then a Master Degree in Science and Food Technology at the University of Parma, I chose it due to my personal interest for the food field and the many job opportunities in the area. Working in Effegidi International has represented my first real job experience and it started by replying to an online job offer that was directed to a person specialised in my field to be employed in the company’s technical office. Since then I have worked in R&D for a couple of years and I have been working closely with the production giving my contribution, as main referee, to the development to the Effegidi International winemaking projects, until we launched it on the markets both Italian and International. Within the last year and half I have consistently been shifting my commitment to the Quality department: both related to the quality of the new lab, improved with new equipment (as my colleague Andrea Dallargine explained in this article), and the regulatory and assurance aspects of it.
WHICH ARE YOUR PERSONAL GOALS?
My main personal goals are 2: continue to give my contribution to reach the goals that the company sets and maintain a constant professional growth to reach an always more defined role within Effegidi International.
WHICH ARE EFFEGIDI’S MAIN STRENGTHS?
One of Effegidi’s greatest strengths is the diversification; during the years we have been entering and growing in different markets that helped us increasing our productive Know-How while opening new chances with constant opportunities and challenges. Another strength is that I have immediately noticed is the team spirit that in Effegidi’s team everyone has and this is something, in my opinion, that is vital to effectively work in a company.
IN YOUR OPINION, WHICH IS EFFEGIDI’S NEAR FUTURE?
In few years, I wish to see Effegidi International consolidating its position in the different markets we are operating now and that compose our offer range: cables, food, foil and winemaking and maybe who knows, after that we may be able to open our horizons and move our first steps in to other different markets. Surely we have everything we need to reach these goals.
