Multilingual marketing director Vittoria Gambirasi is no stranger to the international business arena and switching things up in her career. Thanks to her multilingual abilities (speaking Italian, English, French, Serbian and Croatian), Vittoria started her career in export management at international companies like Mondelēz International (formerly Kraft) and Nestlé. During her over 12-year stint at Nestlé, she took on various roles, and eventually worked as the global marketing lead for nearly four years.

After several years focusing on fast-moving consumer goods and life sciences, including working as a digital transformations executive at Accenture, Vittoria’s career shifted to the education sector, where she most recently held the role of marketing director at IMD Business School, based in Switzerland. 

Vittoria’s “can do” attitude and drive to continue learning have exposed her to all aspects of a business. She now has a full 360-degree view of how everything in marketing and business is connected—which is an invaluable skill, she says.

Tune in to the full  interview hosted by Kyler Canastra on this week’s episode, as Vittoria chats more about her journey from export management to marketing, storytelling campaigns at Nestlé, studying an Executive MBA at IMD and the luxury resort she owns in Croatia, WeLoveRovinj.

“Everything is possible. You just need to find the solution.”

You can watch the full conversation in the video above or on YouTube, and listen to the podcast on Apple or Spotify.
