A serial entrepreneur, Aquila founded MaxMeyer America (a subsidiary of MaxMeyer Duco, S.p.A. of Italy), an importer and distributor of European refinishing products. He sold that business in 1997 to PPG Industries before founding software technology company Ensera, which was subsequently sold in 2001 to Mitchell International, where Aquila served as president and COO.At Solera, Aquila has created and instilled a set of organizational principles that encourage and foster an environment of innovation, high performance and outstanding results. His communication style is to focus on the output of the mission, rather than the input of the individual. And his intensity, which he says is shared by all of Solera's leaders, goes a long way to explaining the company's extraordinary success.
