CEO - Chief Experience Officer

Stefano Giaquinta

With over 20-year career in the European Hotel industry, Stefano background includes multiple Director of Sales roles within Hilton Hotels Corporation, including the famous Rome Cavalieri, a Waldorf Astoria Hotel, in addition to Starwood’s Divisional Account Director for Europe, Africa and the Middle East, and to HelmsBriscoe’s VP Business Development EMEA. During his previous roles, he had the opportunity to lead large sales teams & strategies, and to partner with international clients, hotels and destination management companies (DMC’s), across all segments with particular focus on luxury incentives and corporate events. In 2009, he has been recognized with the prestigious prize “Ragusani nel Mondo” of the XV° annual edition for his very young career in a key sector as Tourism & Hotel Industry for the Sicilian Economy; for two consecutive years, 2011 & 2012, he has been recognized by HelmsBriscoe with the “International Hotel Partner of the Year” award; in 2015, Stefano has received the prestigious prize “Premio Telamone”, assigned by the Ce.p.a.A. as a public recognition to Sicilians who meritoriously engaged in entrepreneurship, research, social, politics, culture, art, who with their actions contribute to giving a different and better vision of the land of Sicily.

Additionally, Stefano was recently recognized in the Top 10 Most Inspiring CEOs to Watch in 2021 by Beyond Magazine (read the article). Among the many personal awards and recognitions, it is also essential to talk about the successes that his company, Mutika EMC, founded in 2010, has achieved over time: in just over 10 years of life, Mutika EMC has become the Top Italian DMC within its competitive set and received major accolades from The Financial Times, UK based and one of the best known financial market media companies in the world, ranked Mutika in the list of the 1,000 fastest growing companies in Europe (March 2021), not only in tourism but in all industrial sectors (you will find us in row # 592 with our company name, B&T Management Srl); In addition, the newspaper Il Sole 24 ore, the most trusted and popular financial market media company in Italy, listed Mutika at number 164 in the ranking of the fastest growing companies in Italy, across all industrial sectors.

Stefano has been a member of ACTE, Association of Corporate Travel Executive, ICCA, MPI, SITE and is a member of FICP, Financial & Insurance Conference professionals.
This background would be the foundation to what led to creating an innovative Italian experience management company (EMC).

Stefano would receive consistent feedback from event management clients that when they came to visit Italy, they received a to-be-expected experience. His passion for Italy, serving customers and desire to provide a unique, never seen before experience is what inspired the beginning of Mutika.

Stefano’s language is listening and experience. It is the groundwork to Mutika. Stefano understands the importance of listening to clients and then designing an experience that is customized to their needs.

Gabriele Finocchio

Born in Messina in 1983 and graduated in Tourism in Messina in 2006, tourism and travel have always been my favorite topics. Thanks to my parents, Carmelo e Lina, Sicily and Italy (but not only) are in my pocket after many trips that helped me to discover and to love my “unique” country. After 8 years spent in Taormina (Sicily), US, Trieste and Milan at Armani Hotels & Resorts I understood that Tourism is my future. My present is at Mutika EMC for more exciting adventures, more experiences and for a smiling future.

Director of Business Development, USA & Canada

Kelsey Nicol

Kelsey joined the Mutika team in September 2019 after 15 years within the third-party market.  In her previous experience, it was important for her to have a well-rounded understanding of event management.  She began her career in operations and then moved to presale, account management and ending with business development.  This variety of experience was in six continents and enriches the ideas and experiences she has to offer.

Kelsey is based in Des Moines, IA and responsible for strategic customer acquisitions and marketing development within the USA and Canada. Being based in the U.S. allows her to be available to Mutika clients and talk through a program’s intricate details having been on the client side and understanding the importance of listening to a customer’s needs.  

She builds partnerships as an experience leader and drives event program improvement through her passion to create authentic, emotional experiences for customers.  Kelsey believes you are only as good as the last program you operated and supports the Mutika team on reimagining today’s client and participant journey through understanding the lifestyle of travelers.  

Favorite Travel Memory:  The first time my husband and I experienced the Amalfi Coast. It was the #1 item on my bucket list and lived up to everything I dreamed it would be and more.
