Experienced Hires​

Stefano Malacrida

Director – EMEA Marketing for the Critical Engineering division

Stefano joined IMI CCI in Milan in February 2011 as Director, EMEA Marketing for the Critical Engineering division.

“IMI has offered me an amazing opportunity to grow and to challenge myself, and allows me to step out of my comfort zone. I was interested in IMI because of its global presence as an international, multicultural company, which has a structured and diversified presence within different growing sectors, and last but not least GREAT ambitions. The most unexpected characteristic that I have witnessed in my time at IMI is passion. From day one, it was easy to find yourself facing a challenge or road block, but at the same time, if you look around, you will recognise several people around you facing their own challenges, yet still showing an amazing passion for the work they do.”


​Yogini Yogalingam

Yogi joined us in 2011, originally as an intern. Her journey through the graduate programme has taken her from the UK and Poland to Malaysia and the USA. Having completed the programme, she’s just starting in her first full role as Product Quality Engineer with IMI Critical Engineering in California, USA.

“My attitude towards IMI has been fairly consistent throughout the programme. I know that this is the company that I want to be part of. I’ve received incredible support, both from the individual IMI businesses and from IMI centrally. Whenever I have any questions, my managers and colleagues take the time to sit down with me and explain certain topics to me. This has not only developed my knowledge, but it has also enabled me to carry out my placement objectives effectively.

“The most surprising thing for me was finding out how easily I was able to settle into a new environment. I truly thought that it was going to be difficult, but the support from IMI, the local business and the other graduates that were already there has been incredible.”​
