An Interview with



According to Warren Buffet, accounting is the language of business. It is not just about terminology, it is more about that internal grammar which regulates a company’s daily activities. The functions performed by our accounting department serve as the basis for all financial business communication within our organization: this is why we hired professionals who are literally accountable for their tasks and responsibilities. Chiara Orsetta Antonioli is one of them.

Before joining Alifood in 2013, Chiara Orsetta already had seventeen years’ work experience -gained in two important companies – that strengthened her knowledge and reinforced the accounting skills that she developed during her studies. Precise and reliable, she usually comes to the office by train and she invests the time of her morning walk from the station in planning the activities of the day ahead.

Besides keeping an accurate record of our accounts, she handles our clients/suppliers bookkeeping, deals with the banks and sorts all the relevant paperwork. A big fan of numbers, always busy with invoices and bank statements, Chiara Orsetta really enjoys when she manages to balance the books. Her fluency in English and French makes her also very fast and accurate in answering our clients’ requests.

“A day without a smile is a day wasted” is her motto and she truly uses it as a rule of behavior, even in the office. When she needs to relax, Chiara Orsetta loves taking long walks in nature.
