Cerbios further strengthens its Project Management system and appoints Vincenzo Ursino as dedicated Director
Cerbios is pleased to announce that Mr. Vincenzo Ursino has joined our team as Director of Project Management Office.
Vincenzo joined Cerbios-Pharma SA on February 2016 as a Project Management consultant first; since May 16th he has been Director of PMO (Project Management Office).
In this role, Mr. Ursino will be in charge of supervising the Cerbios project & portfolio management system in place and supporting all Cerbios’ employees directly involved in all the ongoing projects also as a trainer and coach.
Several years ago, Cerbios initiated the way to continuously improve the services provided to its partner with a professional project management system.
Continuous training and the implementation of a state-of-the-art tool that allows project owners and their team members to access project information from any browser in the world, at any time of the day or night, were essential.
The last missing step, partly due to the size of Cerbios, with only 130 collaborators, was to hire a professional in project management to support the company in this ongoing cultural shift thus installing a holistic view on the complexity of the system.
"I am happy that Vincenzo has decided to join our team” confirms Gabriel Haering, CEO. “The complexity of today’s activities with many different active projects and continuous changes in importance and priorities required this important step.
With his strong background in Team and Project Management, Vincenzo will not only be able to take over full responsibility of the corporate project management system but is already bringing new ideas and approaches that will enable Cerbios to continue the growth of the last years in a more agile way."
Vincenzo holds a degree in Architecture and a degree (honoris causae) in International Business Management.
After several years as Interior Designer and project manager, between 1997 and 1999 Vincenzo worked for Gucci USA as Project Manager and Ermenegildo Zegna Italy as Co-Director of Worldwide Store Planning in Milan.
From 2003 to 2009 he was entrepreneur and CEO of a Group of Companies in diversified business fields.
His teaching activity in Project Management, Strategic Planning and Business Growth started in 2005 University of Perugia (Italy) – Department of Economics.
Since 2009 he has been an independent business management consultant and teaches Project Management at Centro Studi Bancari in Vezia-Lugano.
He is also President of ASIO (Swiss Italian Association for Organization and Management) and professor of its Faculty.
“I feel honored and extremely challenged by this opportunity to work inside an organization such as Cerbios.”confirms Vincenzo Ursino. “I totally share the perspective and the vision of the Company and its Management and I appreciate the high level of the Company overall.
