The success of any organization is contingent upon the quality of its people. Although small in size, MHT has assembled a number of experienced and talented individuals that have devoted themselves to the success of the project.
Carlo Gobbetti – Founder
Mr. Gobbetti is the founder and champion of MHT. Prior to establishing these organizations, Mr. Gobbetti has had a distinguished career as both a businessman and entrepreneur in both the United States and Europe.

Mr. Gobbetti's vision has been the driving force of this project since its inception.
