Arnaldo Scachetti

I am extremely honored to be receiving such an important award as Outstanding Contract Security Director. I am grateful for the recognition I have received for my work because I am very sure that every other nominee for this award was as capable if not more, of winning this award.

I have faced several challenges on my way here, but each one of them has only strengthened me to make me the person I am today; a thorough professional who knows exactly what he wants; someone who sets his eyes on a goal and does not lose sight of it, unless it is achieved. I’ve always strived for leadership and teamwork. Winning this award would not have been possible without the inspiration I have received from my senior management team and my colleagues, for whom I have the deepest respect, and from whom I have derived the strength to challenge myself and perform better at each stage.

I sincerely thank each one of you who have helped me reach a stage where I can proudly hold up this award as a mark of my achievement. I also promise to only get better at my work and to also help others achieve their goals…. Thank you!
