Alessio has dedicated his career to building small and mid-sized businesses, which he believes are the engine of growth and innovation in the U.S. economy. Prior to founding Albaron, Alessio spent eight years as a venture capital and private equity professional at Warburg Pincus, Blackstone, and Morgan Stanley. In these roles he steered the strategic direction and supported the growth plans of companies in the healthcare, business services, technology, financial services, and energy sectors.
A serial entrepreneur, Alessio has founded two other companies: Clearabee, a B2B logistics provider that reached $30 million of revenue in four years, and Evermore Nutrition, a healthcare services firm. In these ventures he generated substantial growth by applying innovative, data-driven technologies to improve go-to-market strategies and supply chain operations.
Alessio believes in the importance of mentorship for personal and professional development. The eldest of five siblings and the first in his family to earn a university degree, he paid his way through college by working as an IT service engineer. Alessio earned an MBA from The Wharton School at the University of Pennsylvania and a BSc in Finance and Management from Cass Business School in London and Bocconi in Milan. He continues to coach students and young entrepreneurs from his Alma Mater. In his spare time he enjoys cooking dishes from his native Milan for friends and mountaineering with his Welsh Springer Spaniel, Ollie.
