Insights from a CEMS Alumni

Federico Gozzi, Marketing Manager for Mulino Bianco Minicakes (CEMS MIM, Uni College Dublin, 2016).


What is your role and what was your career path like?

I currently hold the position of Marketing Manager for Mulino Bianco Minicakes. In this role I have the opportunity to personally follow the whole production innovation process, from the first laboratory recipes to the implementation of an omnichannel communication plan once the product is ready.

I previously worked in the Marketing Italy Sauces Team as a Brand Manager, where I focused on marketing campaigns for pesto and meat sauces. A great opportunity where I had the chance to personally manage the whole launch plan of Barilla Pesto, a blaze of greenery both online and offline!

I can definitely confirm that the CEMS Network has been a great calling card with all the people and environments I got in touch with in these 5 years after my graduation.


What would you say to young people who want to join Barilla?

Barilla is a great company, certainly comparable in size to the large companies in the FMCG sector, however it contains true and sincere values that make you feel like a person rather than an employee.

So, what really makes a difference for me is being able to work for a company where you can feel the sense of belonging in every company function.

From the first day here, you will have a clear vision of the Italian industrial history. The people who work here feel part of a family, ready to welcome you and pass on the passion for their work. Dedication, knowledge, humility and passion.

Passion that mainly comes from something very simple: feeling like active contributors in bringing the Italian Food par excellence to the tables all over the world, good products for you and for the planet.

If you want to start your career in a constantly evolving Big Player where the human aspect is not compromised, this is your company!
