  3. LinkedIn Profile

I joined SEC in December 2017 after working as a Senior Sales Advisor in luxury retail, supervising a team of 15 people. I wanted to change industry and start a new adventure, and recruitment is the challenge I was looking for. A job where every day is different, where you can learn a thousand different things and apply all your knowledge and background.

I focus on finding the right candidates in R&D, clinical R&D and Medical Affairs for global pharmaceutical companies.

I am passionate about England (my favourite country!), its history, culture, politics and literature. My favourite queen of all time is Elizabeth I and I'm also a huge fan of Harry Potter. I likes cooking in his spare time (like every Italian) and I talk a lot! I love fantasy movies and romantic comedies. I'm a fan of Northern European countries, their way of life and culture (despite the cold weather, which doesn’t bother me). I'm passionate about international political relationships and global politics.


Daniel García Rodríguez, Junior Neuroscientist

Andrea has been hardworking and attentive since the first time he contacted me until even after he knew I got the job. He is always really willing to help at any time no matter which issue, checking up if everything was going great. I am really grateful to have had a recruiter like him working with me.

Barbara Torrisi, Senior Project Manager

Andrea assisted me in the recruitment for the post of Senior R&D PM at Exeltis. I have to say I have never known an equally talented head hunter. Andrea was able to understand my needs from the very first contact and provided me with very valuable advices. He negotiated the conditions I wanted and he made the hiring process extremely smooth. Andrea is also a great person with excellent communication skills, he is someone who really do care for the person he works for. This attitude is shared at SEC Pharma, as I had the chance to interact with Andrea’s line manager, and they also reserved me the same treatment. I would recommend Andrea and SEC Pharma to everyone who is looking to significantly progress in their career and wish to get assisted with high professionalism and respect. A big BRAVO to Andrea and SEC Pharma's team and thanks again for all the work you do everyday.
