Giuseppe Bonsignore

CHIEF OPERATING OFFICER

ITALY

Can you introduce yourself in a few words? Your age, your family situation and the country you live in?

Giuseppe

My name is Giuseppe. I joined Argos Wityu three years ago as Chief Operating Officer. I live in Italy and, in my current role, I visit all Argos offices across Europe on a regular basis.

Tell us about your career and how you joined Argos?

Giuseppe

I spent most of my career working for international investment banks and asset managers, before joining Argos Wityu in 2019. I was very interested in private equity, and I was attracted by Argos’s successful and unique business strategy along with the talented and very dedicated team. The international scope of the Group’s activity is truly stimulating, and I very much enjoy travelling and working in a multicultural environment.

Is this the path you thought you would take when you started your studies?

Giuseppe

When I started my studies, I was planning to become a jet pilot. Later on, at university, I very much enjoyed everything related to the financial industry and then chose to work in the banking sector. But I also obtained my private pilot licence!

The world of private equity has changed a lot in recent years. What is your definition of PE? How do you see it?

Giuseppe

I love working in private equity, because it means helping companies to develop, hence contributing positively to the society in which we live.

What gets you out of bed in the morning?

Giuseppe

The neighing of horses. I live close to an old horse stable.

What encounter - or moment - stands out in your time at Argos?

Giuseppe

At Argos I found a very pleasant and friendly working environment.

Some say we are the average of the people we meet. What do you think?

Giuseppe

I’d say my parents have influenced me the most; they helped me to develop my core values. Today, I am lucky enough to be surrounded by a small number of very special people (friends, relatives, colleagues) from whom I learn something new almost every day.

Is there a person you admire, who inspires you on a daily basis? (e.g. a writer, artist, politician, etc.)

Giuseppe

The people I admire most are theoretical physicists, because they contemplate the mysteries of our world.

Outside of your job, what are your passions or commitments?

Giuseppe

When not in the office, I love sports and animals. I am very fond of history, aviation and music.

How do you see yourself in 10 years?

Giuseppe

According to some theoretical physicists, time is an illusion.
“I love working in private equity because it means helping companies to develop, hence contributing positively to the society in which we live.”

Do you have a special place that reflects who you are, that inspires you and contributes to your balance?

Giuseppe

A forest. I love trees and animals, so a forest is always a special place for me, where I feel good and perfectly at home, especially if I am with a dog.

In another life, you would be... ?

Giuseppe

A jet pilot
