My name is Marco Amato, I was born in 1976. After my degree in Education, obtained with the highest marks, I began my long career in the field of the Large Distribution, which lasted almost twenty years. In particular, I was first a seller, then a buyer, and finally commercial director in a big Italian chain of supermarkets and Cash & Carry.
I’ve always been passionate about blogging and communication, so in 2017 I became Marketing Manager of the largest Italian online wholesaler of consumer products. There I developed some innovative and successful marketing techniques. An experience that led me in 2019 to create You&Media, a communication agency specialized in affiliate marketing.
In 2022 I started co-operating with Safety Shoes Today: the most popular blog in the world of safety shoes and safety footwear. My goal is to enrich this project with all experience gained so far, bringing Safety Shoes Today even higher.
I was born in London in 1975 and still live here. I could define myself, summing up in a few words my long working career, a great expert in the field of foot and foot problems.
Immediately after graduating in Motor Science I started working in an orthopaedics in which orthotics were made to measure for people with foot problems. In 1999 I was hired as Key Account Manager in a well-known chain of safety footwear and other personal protective equipment. Among my clients I had several industries, which I visited regularly to understand the needs of workers, both in terms of protection and comfort.
During these years I have consolidated my knowledge on foot problems. Furthermore, I studied carefully the products I proposed: attending courses, participating in trade fairs and, often, accepting the invitation of manufacturers to visit the factories. I was thus able to observe closely the techniques and materials used to produce the best safety shoes.
Since 2015 I have been collaborating with the PPE Academy for the content of Safety Shoes Today.
