Julian Movsesian is the President and founder of Capital Management Strategies, Inc. and the President and CEO of Succession Capital Alliance. Mr. Movsesian is also one of the partners in DiBenedetto AS Roma LLC, which is an American group finalizing the takeover of AS Roma.

I spoke to Mr. Movsesian today, and he was kind enough to take time from his very busy schedule to answer a few questions.

Mr. Movsesian, it is a great pleasure to speak with you.

You grew up in Egypt. What is your background in soccer and/or soccer management?

Julian Movsesian: "I have followed soccer my whole life. Ever since I was a kid."

How long had you followed Italian soccer before making this bid?

Julian Movsesian: "I have followed Italian soccer for over 40 years."

Do you have a favorite team?

Julian Movsesian: (He laughed.) “AC Milan was my favorite but I’m now a Roma fan.”

Do any of your partners speak and/or read Italian?

Julian Movsesian: "Some do and some don’t."

Have you or your other partners in this deal ever done business in Italy?

Julian Movsesian: "I can only speak for myself. I have not, but have been there many times."

Do you plan to manage the team from Rome or will the club be managed remotely?

Julian Movsesian: "Everything will be based from Rome."

You and your partners have managed large companies in diverse sectors. What type of training/study will you and your partners undergo as preparation to manage an Italian soccer team?

Julian Movsesian: "We have a significant business management background. Obviously, that is why we bid for AS Roma."

What is your vision for the Roma project?

Julian Movsesian: "To cultivate and increase the global marketing. It's been lacking."

Finally, what is your message to AS Roma fans around the world?

Julian Movsesian: "To win the Serie A this year."

Mr. Movsesian, thank you for taking the time to speak with me, and all the best wishes with this new venture.

Thank you, Steve.
