Alright, alright, alright. Time for the next instalment of Faces of Penta. Our short video series that gives you the opportunity to get to know the people behind the brand and what makes them tick.

This time we’re stopping off at our headquarters in Frankfurt am Main to catch up with one of our favourite Italian exports, Riccardo, our head of brand marketing. He’s been at Penta since August 2019 and played a huge part in shaping the image of Penta as we know it today.


Before we discuss karaoke choices, regrettable purchases and maybe the most divisive question around (hint, it involves pineapple and a certain popular Italian food) here’s what Riccardo had to say about working at Penta:


“Honestly, working at Penta is fun. Sure, it’s also hard work at times, but I have great freedom to experiment with new concepts and push creative boundaries – much more than at most hospitality companies. Plus, I get to play foosball with my team during breaks! I get a lot of inspiration from movies and music. It’s hard for me to pick two out, but I keep going back to “Dazed and Confused” and I have a soft spot for “The Night We Met” by Lord Huron. And when all work is done, a well-made Sazerac seals the week.”

If you’ve never seen or heard Riccardo’s favourites, we recommend you check them out. Anyway, find out more about him by watching the quickfire video here.
