Davide Valentino - Praesidiad


Roland was working in Praesidiad Finance Team, during a challenging period given by the covid-19 global pandemic. He is a highly skilled and target-focused professional, able to work under pressure respecting always strict deadlines and accomplish assigned targets. During his experience in Praesidiad Group, he has been able to keep the pace of company Transformation building strong cooperation with all the finance community members. I definitely recommend bringing Roland onboard as a value-added for your organization.

Alessandro Troisi - Praesidiad


Roland worked with me on a very challenging ERP transformation project demonstrating a very professional attitude and a strong commitment. He is a very structured and well-organized resource very knowledgeable in Procure to Pay Processes and Financial accounting. His background is functional in SAP, but he was able to extend his skills in IFS application and in a more technical area like Data Migration. It was very easy and effective to work with him.
