Giuseppe Pezzano is a visionary and creator and has been since his early days. While attending University he saw an opportunity to rent cell phones to students studying abroad, before prepaid phones were an option. The cell phone rental company that was started catered to students and tourists and grew to over 100 employees around the globe. Many offshoot companies of the cell phone business were then created, including housing rentals, shipping, and insurance services and student and tourist document preparation assistance.
Giuseppe also works in real estate development and management of his personal properties and owns a boutique hotel chain called The Art Inn.
He then turned his focus to his life long passion of soccer, creating and becoming CEO of OSA Soccer Academy, LLC.
Mr. Pezzano united his experience, know-how and his contacts to create an innovative approach to soccer business development. As a soccer professional with a keen sense for business this rare combination of qualities has allowed him created a network of connections with industry professionals from all levels.
Giuseppe used his experience as a semi pro player and owner/manager of a semi pro team and playing facility in Italy (which was used by ACF Fiorentina’s second team) to develop OSA. OSA expanded it’s offers to provide a complete suite of services which include a soccer academy in Florence, Italy, consulting services for professional and professional Serie A teams like ACF Fiorentina, Bologna FC and other MLS soccer teams like Montreal Impact.
Currently Mr Pezzano is focused on the development of his own club, OSA Seattle FC. OSA is dedicated to helping the growth of soccer, and to giving opportunities to local young players to improve their skills.
Top caliber soccer training is offered to players using an Italian methodology created and tested by professional youth development academies like ACF Fiorentina!
