Projects and Achievements (selection)

  • Successfully led the IATA SIS (Simplified Interline Settlement) project from the vision to the vendor selection (first 2 years). Also lead the functional requirements gathering during the entire 4 year project.  This involved directing various user groups with carriers on a worldwide basis; covering passenger, cargo and non-transport (miscellaneous – ground handling, engineering, ATC etc). This project was implemented in Sep 2011 / May 2012 and included an intelligent e-Invoicing platform and interfaces to the major clearing houses. It was the largest change in the last 35 years of Revenue and Financial Accounting.
    This multi-million project which lasted 4 years, was delivered on time and implemented with minimal impact into IATA and the IATA carriers world-wide. Conservative estimates value the cost reduction benefits to the carriers to be over $700 million per year.
  • Successfully directed an important cash-flow management project for an European client
  • Experienced Project Manager with proven track record also with multicultural teams

Gianna has been a key driver for the success of the IATA SIS project, which was extremely complex under many dimensions.

In particular, the in-depth knowledge of the airlines and the industry was essential, as well as the technology savior, the stakeholders management and the ability to mobilize the entire aviation community on a global scale. Today SIS is a standard for airlines, IATA members and not, and for an growing number of partners and suppliers, which in itself is a testament of Gianna’s contribution to our industry.

Gianna’s style is frank, direct, no non-sense and very much ‘driven’. This is exactly the profile of the person that I would trust to drive an ambitious project expected to be delivered on time, on budget and at the highest standard of quality.
