Founder/CEO, United Visual Arts
Roberto Ragone is a tireless connector of people and has been an advocate for an impressive range of important causes in diverse areas—good government, socially-responsible entrepreneurship, and Italian culture, to name just three. Roberto worked with me for several years in our effort to launch an innovative small business. He never gives up, always has useful ideas for sales and marketing, tries to align principle and profitability, and, pushes forward even when all seems lost. He has the kind of can-do energy, smarts, and initiative that everyone needs on their team!
