Donino, with a clear vision for bullfinch’s future technological trajectory, announces his plans for growth: “I am delighted to be part of such a talented group and to help expand bullfinch’s leading position in the GreenTech financing market. My focus will be on scaling the digital ecosystem, and enriching it with advanced AI data products, thereby supporting the growth of our partners, helping to bridge the financial gaps for clean energy opportunities and accelerating the energy transition."

With the hiring of Nicola Timoncini as Head of Platform Engineering, previously Senior Engineer at Google and Facebook and more recently Head of DevOps at, and the hiring of Massimo Bozza as Head of Cybersecurity, previously Senior Security Manager at Yoox, bullfinch has secured additional senior technology expertise.

His role is crucial to ensure long-term performance of the assets and monitor the daily operations of bullfinch’s cleantech partners and the asset production data.

With more than 10 years’ experience in equity capital markets positions for American investment banks and financial management of start-ups, Annie Dalietou as Head of Finance will be responsible for overseeing and directing the company's financial operations, ranging from financial planning to performance monitoring and reporting.
