Emiliano is just the right person to help us achieve them.”

Hondo Katz, board member for Parascript, says, “Having worked with Emiliano on and off over the last 10 years, I’ve seen his leadership firsthand. I believe Parascript is in very adept hands and look forward to seeing what Emiliano and Parascript are capable of together.”

Before joining Parascript, Emiliano spent six years at McKinsey & Company, with a focus on strategy and operations. He held additional positions as Head of Operations at GLG – Gerson Lehrman Group and Chief Operating Officer at Civitas Learning, a Francisco Partners portfolio company. In both cases, he orchestrated and implemented successful performance transformations. Additionally, Emiliano has co-founded several companies and a growth equity fund.
