Co-Founder & Managing Director, Nest - Nest

Stefan Cataldo

The Professional

One of our original Co-Founders who put together the foundational twigs of Nest Performance, Stefan has 13 years digital experience having started his career at Google, where he stayed for 5 years before moving onto Facebook.

Stefan has migrated all around the world whilst building up his extensive digital career, having worked in London, India and Dublin throughout his time at Google where he was instrumental in setting up one of the first operational teams outside of Dublin, building it up to a team of 45 before flying over to Facebook.

Here, he was responsible for managing numerous emerging markets across MENA, Sub-Saharan Africa, Israel and Russia, which were Facebook’s fastest growing regions at the time.

And if that wasn’t enough, before co-founding Nest Performance Stefan led the EMEA team as Managing Director at Nanigans. During his 4 years here, Stefan started as Client Services Director, helping set up and expand the first non-US office and aided in all facets of the business. He subsequently took over as Managing Director, and successfully managed the company’s transition to a fully SaaS business and doubling the overall ARR.

Through this time Stefan worked with numerous clients including eBay,, Innogames, Deliveroo, Transferwise, Netflix and Gamesys.

The Person

If you like long, intricate stories with plenty of twists and a dash of excitement pull up a chair and get Stefan to tell you where he’s from.

That’s right, the international lifestyle isn’t just a career choice – it’s in Stefan’s blood. He’s got a father from Italy, a mother from the Falkland Islands, they met in Libya and Stefan subsequently grew up in Turkey.

Obviously being an extensive jet-setter is pretty exhausting, so when Stefan’s not travelling around the world he can be found on the sofa, binging on his very eclectic taste in movies with his rather anxious Cavapoo, Frankie – who particularly enjoys 2001: A Space Odyssey, The Big Lebowski, Cinema Paradiso and old zombie movies.
