I enjoyed working with Simona when she ran Lottomatica’s Investors Relations reporting to me. It is key for IR professionals to build trust with a company’s investors base. The long term success of a businesses as a public company depends on both effective communication and integrity. Simona always understood that a balanced mix of marketing, communication and honest disclosure was key to establishing a healthy relationship with investors and that the trust she built with investors and her reputation were key assets not just for herself but also for the company.
