New Junior Trader joins The Schneider Group’s Commercial Team

A Woolly Welcome to Paolo Foglia Taverna

On 15 March 2021, Paolo Foglia Taverna joined the Schneider Group team as Junior Trader. He will support the Administration and Commercial teams out of the Biella office. 

Paolo is 19 years old and originally from Biella. He has recently graduated from the high school Liceo G. & Q. Sella, in Biella, specialising in English, Spanish and German. Paolo has already been introduced to the world of wool as a child through his grandfather who worked in the textile industry his whole life. Paolo’s personal interests outside of work are health and fitness. He also enjoys discovering new cultures and habits, mainly from watching and reading. He says about himself that he is always curious and always willing to try and experience new things. 

Paolo was interested in joining the Schneider Group team as a Junior Trader because of the opportunity of working and travelling at the same time (in non-pandemic times) while also getting to know new people. So far, Paolo has been learning how wool is processed from the farm to the final product, from the beginning to the end. Thanks to his colleagues, he feels he is learning new things about wool every day, and he feels very lucky to be working with colleagues who are so experienced in wool production and sales.
