We’d like to introduce you to Giuseppe Fierro, aka Pino! Pino has been with Yardi for over 5 years and is based in the Milton Keynes office. He’s an expert on all things Yardi Breeze Premier, so let’s get to know him better.
What’s your job title and what do you like most about your job?
I’m a technical account manager. I like the variety of systems that I help support and the support provided from colleagues in my team and the rest of the Yardi team.
What do you love to do when you’re not working?
I enjoy watching football. I support Luton Town and try to watch as many of their games as possible. I also enjoy playing golf.
My handicap is water … I can guarantee that if there is any water (even a puddle), I can find it. In one of my last rounds, I managed to skim the ball across the water and it just ran out of legs to reach the opposite side.
My most embarrassing moment on a course was when teeing off I hit the ladies tee and the ball came back to me.
What is your favourite piece of technology and why?
iPhone – has everything I need all in one place.
What do you love most about the real estate industry?
I suppose the last couple of years would have to be how Yardi has provided so much support to the industry financially. It’s great to see how in these difficult times Yardi could still provide that.
If you could travel anywhere right now, where would you go?
Has to be Florida. I always enjoy going back there for the amusement parks. Universal Studios is my favourite. The Hulk ride always makes us laugh as my wife will not go on that ride anymore. The last time she went on it she came off the same colour as the Hulk. Also, I enjoy the shopping there. I’d go there with an empty suitcase and come back with it full.
What’s your favourite food?
I should really say Italian, but I really enjoy Indian food. My favourite dish is Prawn Puri but my friend has just opened a restaurant and I am starting to make my way through some different dishes.
Favourite movie of all time?
Life of Brian – I cannot tell you the amount of times I have seen this film!
Favourite mobile app?
TikTok – my son made me download it because he’d done some videos that I had to like.
What is one thing you’re looking forward to when the world opens back up?
To re-book a trip that was cancelled due to Covid and take my son to watch Barcelona play football at their wonderful Camp Nou stadium.
Let us know a unique fact about yourself!
I have been involved in running a local football club for 11 years. I coached my son from the age of 8 and now I help him coach an U9’s team which he manages.
The fulfilling part of my role at the club is that I have watched many of the players from the teams grow and develop their football skills and now I can watch how my son develops from playing to now managing.
