I am Gianpaolo Turri, an Italian citizen living in Switzerland (after having travelled and worked in many other places). Thank you for visiting my page, I hope you will find interesting information.
Currently I am the President of the Adamant Namiki group, responsible for medical and pharmaceutical devices, Micro-motors and hard material business units. Within the Namiki Group, I have been in the role of Global Director of Innovation and EMEA Business Development Director, where I was coordinating a team working to expand Namiki market in the watch business, medical devices, optical instruments, university collaboration.
Previously I have been R&D Program Manager at Abbott Vascular and EMEA quality manager for KAZ, part of the Helen of Troy group. In the earliest part of my career I worked as researcher and engineer in different research groups and laboratories, mainly in the field of renewable energy and medical imaging.
I have profound knowledge in managing research and development projects from the planning phase to the adaptation for routine production. My educational background is from Milano polytechnic, UCLA university and I hold a PhD from Imperial college.
While performing these studies, I was deeply involved in startup companies and later on I was working for global multinational. That gives me a thorough understanding of the research work as well as of the transfer to commercial production phase. Up to date, I was leading teams up to12 people and a budget responsibility up to 10M$
My management skills and social skills allow me to lead teams to success and efficiency. As an example I was able to reduce the cost-of-quality for my employer by 500k$ per year through defining and implementing a bonus strategy for suppliers and warehouses.
