More about our new team members:

Alice Cipressi – Head of Production and Innovation

Alice’s career has been a testament to her dedication to localization. After her studies in language mediation, specializing in English and German, she began as an in-house translator for German market clients, eventually progressing to project management. With around 20 years in the sector, Alice has held diverse roles including translator, linguistic lead, project manager, team lead, and business unit manager.

Notably, in recent years within an international group, she managed Project Manager teams across Europe as Director of Production and later as General Manager for Southern Europe from 2020 to 2023.

Her guiding principle is the African proverb, “If you want to go fast, go alone. If you want to go far, go together.” Alice’s decision to lead Yellow Hub’s Production team stems from a desire to be part of a robust and ambitiously entrepreneurial environment, and her belief in her ability to contribute to the team’s organizational, technological, and professional growth.

A passionate trekker and outdoor enthusiast, Alice finds balance in nature. She’s an avid reader and culinary aficionado, always eager to explore new flavors and recipes.

Her most challenging role? Being a mother to two children. She describes it as managing the “most demanding team ever,” a daily challenge she embraces with dedication and love.

Il suo motto preferito è: If you want to go fast, go alone. If you want to go far, go together. (Proverbio africano)

La scelta di guidare il team di Produzione in Yellow Hub è motivata dal desiderio di entrare in una realtà solida e animata da una sana ambizione imprenditoriale, e dalla convinzione di poter contribuire allo sviluppo organizzativo, tecnologico e professionale di un team qualificato e coeso.

Appassionata di trekking e vita all’aria aperta, trova il suo equilibrio perdendosi nella natura. Lettrice fervente e appassionata di cucina, adora provare nuovi sapori e nuove ricette.

Il suo ruolo più sfidante? Essere madre di due bambini, il “team più impegnativo mai gestito”, una sfida quotidiana affrontata con dedizione e amore.

Danilo Monaco – Head of Sales

Danilo’s leadership style is shaped by his twenty-year European language industry career. His approach is characterized by firmness in pursuing objectives, and a deep belief in achieving results through systematic teamwork, knowledge sharing, and empowerment.

Danilo advocates that sales success primarily comes from structured processes but also maintains the necessary flexibility to incorporate his team’s ideas and contributions. His assertive yet courteous manner enables him to navigate complex dynamics, consistently bringing out the best in people. His skills in summarization, action-orientation, and customer-centric approach, combined with his significant experience in the localization sector, including his role as CEO of a major multinational company during intense growth and reorganization, underpin his impressive career trajectory.

This year, Danilo Monaco has taken on the role of Head of Sales at Yellow Hub, where his leadership and expertise are set to be the driving force behind our dynamic sales team

An outdoor enthusiast, Danilo is an avid marathon runner and paragliding aficionado, frequently soaring over the mountains of Italy and Spain. He seamlessly blends his love for nature with his professional life, epitomizing the balance between personal and professional spheres.
