About Us

As of 2019, we are part of the Cerved Group, the first entirely Italian Solution Consulting group. Our skills in strategy, transformation and research can provide enterprises with sustainable, state-of-the-art and concrete end-to-end solutions.

Being part of Cerved Group, Italian leading information provider, allows us to assess data from various ecosystems  business and provide innovative  “data – driven” solutions to our clients.

This represents the furthest frontier of advisory services.We have always considered Sustainability to be a key success factor for companies. Our name reflects this belief: MBS – Management for Business Sustainability. We design growth strategies, organisational models and all other clients’ initiatives by integrating sustainability criteria into our solutions.


MBS is a long-standing consulting firm: it counts over 30 years of experience and more than 150 professionals consultants or researchers. We are a close-knit group, in which different origins, skills and aptitudes represent a resource for the team as a whole and for our clients.

MBS Consulting was founded in 1987 by Roberto Fantino, an aerospace engineer with extensive experience in multinational companies and consulting firms. His vision was to make strategic consulting projects an “actual steer to transformation” for enterprises, focusing both on technical solutions and change management processes. His intuition has long been proven correct and, over the past thirty years, the growth of human resources, skills and customers has been steady. 

Enea Dallaglio and Maurizio Valsecchi led the creation of Innovation Team in 2013, a hub of innovative skills, tools and methods dedicated to the research, strategic positioning of enterprises and markets monitoring.

In recent years, MBS became a partner in  The Transformation Alliance, a network of European consulting firms with a common vision on how to deliver consulting projects.

In 2019, MBS joined the Cerved Group and thus complemented its own value proposition to the market, with a wealth of data, new methods and solutions to support a new and increasingly “data-driven” advisory model.

In 2021 MBS acquires REF-E, a research and consulting company with over 20 years of experience in the energy and utilities sector. MBS becomes a point of reference for companies in this sector and for all stakeholders interested by energy transition.



Strategic vision

In markets with increasingly fluid boundaries and characterized by rapid changes, the challenge for companies is to be able to evolve their operational models effectively and with increasing speed. This requires sophisticated and strongly data-driven decision-making models.

We are the first Italian solution consulting group capable of supporting large companies and public organizations in their transformation and sustainable growth processes through an approach that integrates business consulting, advanced analytics, and digital solutions.

This proposition is possible thanks to our affiliation with the Cerved Group, which allows us to access unique assets such as data ecosystems and digital solution development capabilities.



Anyone who joins the MBS team embraces the values that guide us and brings them to life day after day.
