About Marco

Marco leads our Risk Practice in the Mediterranean region and our work on credit risk globally. Based in Milan, he advises many European financial institutions on issues relating to risk management and business strategy.

Marco’s recent projects include helping a European bank optimize its liquidity and funding positions, designing collection and workout processes for several financial institutions, defining a credit-underwriting strategy for a bank’s consumer-lending and mortgage business; and developing the credit model (organization, key processes, incentives, and tools) for several European banks. He also recently helped one of Italy’s leading financial institutions identify its key growth options and develop market-entry strategies for a number of different businesses and countries.

Prior to joining McKinsey in 1998, Marco was a lecturer on the subject of financial instruments at Italy’s University of Calabria. He holds a bachelor’s degree in business administration from Bocconi University in Milan and a master's in business administration from INSEAD.
