Captain of a crack digital transformation team 

When Giuseppe Martino, Project Manager Team Leader at Axians Italia, joined VINCI Energies, he rediscovered the pleasure of working in an international environment. This rugby fan also strives to cultivate teamwork and entrepreneurial spirit.

The international dimension has always been central to Giuseppe Martino’s professional choices. He has been Project Manager Team Leader at Axians Italia since 2021, working in the public sector and transport in the south-central region (Florence, Rome, Naples, Bari and Palermo). His career began at the German company Siemens and continued with a number of international IT groups. “Working in a multicultural environment with international customers has always been a driver for me,” he says. 

And in April 2020, when VINCI Energies acquired Brand ID, the Italian firm specialising in digital transformation where he had worked for six years, Giuseppe Martino saw an opportunity to reconnect with the international scene. 

On joining VINCI Energies, Giuseppe Martino particularly appreciated the emphasis on teamwork and entrepreneurial spirit, which had been core elements of the Brand ID model. “We manage our activities and our teams as though we were a small business, and of course with the attention to financial targets, but always keeping a close eye on our partnerships, especially with our customers,” he says. 

Leading a team of eight project managers, Giuseppe Martino is working through recruitment policies to promote parity. With his team, he works on large-scale projects such as the ongoing transformation of a conventional public transport line in Scotland into an autonomous system.
