Velocity Partners — Conversation with Federico Bertolini

Hi everyone,

This is another post in our Velocity Partners colleague spotlight series of conversations. The idea is to sit down with some of my Velocity Partners colleagues and to “talk shop” a bit. Getting to know their projects, interests, backgrounds, etc.

In this installment, we spend a little time with Federico Bertolini. He is a very busy Team Lead who comes to us from our Montevideo, Uruguay office. In fact, as of June this was a recent promotion–so congratulations Federico! Listen in and get to know Federico.

Our conversation mostly surrounds his technical role as he assists his clients towards building leading-edge solutions. In Valentin’s case, he’s been working with PeopleMatter since he joined Velocity Partners two years ago. He has some wonderful things to say about this client and their commitment to agility, collaboration, teamwork, and the results those things can drive. His Montevideo team is one of three teams that Velocity Partners has working with PeopleMatter. And even though the other two are in Argentina, we provide a cohesive experience across all three for our client.

For the first time in one of my interviews, we explore Kanban and the ‘why’ behind the clients’ using it. And finally, we also explore a bit of his personal background. All-in-all, it was a really nice chat.

Stay agile my friends,


Recorded in June 2014…
