About our Guest:

Born near Milan, Mr. Oggionni started to work in logistics very young. At the age of 26, he was already a director and in charge of the market development of the company Avandero, a historic Italian logistic company.

In 1975 he opened the first Avandero office in Saudi Arabia, creating great success for the company. He opened other representative offices in Africa and in the Middle East. He left the company in 1991 after being part of the Board of directors and after a series of successful initiatives for the group.

In 1992 he moved to the Far East, and made Hong Kong his home. Here besides working in the logistic, he became an important figure for the local and the Italian community.

He was one of the founders of the Italian Business Association, now the Italian Chamber of Commerce of which has been the director for many years. He also founded the Scuola Italiana Manzoni, a fundamental asset for the Italian community, where during the years hundreds of kids from the Italian families have the opportunity to keep learning the Italian language, history, and culture and being recognised by the Italian educational system. He created the important "Festa del Uva", a great festival dedicated to Italian food and wines.
