CEO of KPNQwest Italia S.p.A.

Marco Fiorentino was born in Milan in December 1964. He lived in the United States extensively.
In 1986, he graduated from Princeton University with honors, with a major in Electrical Engineering and Computer Science and a minor in Public and Foreign Affairs from the Woodrow Wilson School of Princeton University.
From 1986 to 1989 Fiorentino was a consultant for Booz, Allen & Hamilton, first in New York and later in Milan, where he advised several telecommunications operators.
In 1990, he worked for Citibank/Citinvest (LBO Group).
In 1991 Fiorentino obtained an MBA from Harvard Business School and subsequently returned to Italy as a shareholder and Managing Director of COMM2000 Spa. He led the company's entry into the corporate Internet services sector, and brought it to be Italy's second largest independent provider in that sector.
In 2000, after nine years of continuous growth and profitability, Fiorentino sold COMM2000 to NASDAQ listed KPNQwest NV - except for the business unit offering the FreeFAX service - which was spun off into MESSAGENET Srl and retained by Fiorentino. He remained as Managing Director of COMM2000, renamed KPNQwest Italia, where he led a comprehensive growth plan and investment in long-haul and city fiber optic infrastructure and Data Centers in Italy, according to the parent company's strategy.
In April 2003, Marco Fiorentino repurchased KPNQwest Italia along with its Data Center in Milano Caldera from the bankruptcy of KPNQwest NV and in the same returned the Italian company back to profitability.
Marco Fiorentino has contributed to initiatives for the general benefit of the Italian Internet community. In 1999 he played part in the founding of MIX Srl, the company that manages the main Italian Internet NAP. Fiorentino is currently a Board Member of MIX Srl and vice president of AIIP, the Italian Internet Service Provider Association.
