His 18 years track record as an innovator spans from software development, real time communications, online advertising, search engine development and more recently Microsoft Kinect for XBOX.

His impact and ability to execute and work with others perhaps is best summarized by the comments of people that have worked closely with him.

“Google’s Eric Schmidt made the statement revealing “The story of innovation has not changed. It has always been a small team of people who have a new idea, typically not understood by people around them and their executives.” Mario is one of such a small group of innovative people who not only “get it” but also able to take these concepts to market in a form that adds values to our customers” (Xuedong Huang, Distinguished Engineer, Microsoft).

“Mario is a super energetic creative force that helped Bing differentiate on tablet devices. Any team needing passion and vision would benefit from Mario’s leadership” (Brian MacDonald, Corporate Vice President, Bing).
