Meet Fulvio

Renaissance Man / Office Manager

Fulvio Padova

In my view, professional success and accomplishment is built upon finding passion and excitement in every day. At work I find it in routers, servers, IT platforms and wiring diagrams. I love to talk new technology, infrastructure and facilities. If it can be built, transmitted, pulverized, connected or configured; you have my attention.

I am happiest troubleshooting problems and implementing ideas. I manage Axis Research with any eye toward helping it grow, providing a stable environment and just enough oversight to let the team create, analyze, and map the strategies that they do best. My philosophy is simple: In work that spans from a big PR powerhouse to a small but mighty start-ups, my focus is on maximizing efficiencies and increasing flexibility, and always seeking opportunity.

I know a little about a lot and I never stop absorbing knowledge. So if you have an idea or want an open ear (did I mention a minor in HR labor relations and personnel management?), my quadrant at Axis Research is the right place.
