“Italian Women Out to Conquer the World” is the title of an article in this week’s issue of Vanity Fair Italia in which Italy-America Chamber of Commerce of Texas director Alessia Paolicchi is featured.
According to the piece, nearly 65 percent of Italian professionals working abroad for Italian chambers of commerce are women.
“I came to Texas in 2009 with my husband, who works for a large multi-national oil and gas company,” said Ms. Paolicchi in an interview with the magazine’s editors.
“During my first two years in Texas, I continued to work with my company in Italy. I thought that I would go back ‘home’ shortly. But then it became clear that we were going to spend the second part of our lives in Houston. Just a few weeks had gone by when I received a proposal to take over the post as secretary general of the Chamber of Commerce in Texas.”
