“Antonio’s arrival at Wor(l)d reflects our management development strategy, as well as the company’s overall vision: to become the first global network, built by people to connect and communicate, and share in the benefits,” said Fabio Galdi, CEO of Wor(l)d. “Antonio’s skills allow us to unite our in-house design, marketing, and new technology strengths, with a working knowledge of the network marketing sector.”

I am delighted to start this adventure with Fabio, who is not only the great manager and entrepreneur that we’ve all come to know, but also my great friend.”
