    Question I consolidated my experience... Is it correct?

    Is it correct to say: I consolidated my experience in the Italian market starting up....

    Does it make sense? I would use it after the starter where I wrote how long is my experience and where I developed it, using words such as 'gained', 'developed' and 'broad experience'.

    ???

    Does it make sense? Somewhat. I would use it after the starter, where I wrote about what my experience is and where I developed it, using words such as 'gained', 'developed,' and 'broad experience."

    First of all, Thank you for replying.

    The complete sentence should be:

    I have consolidated my experience in the Italian market starting up a new bank from scratch.

    Is it correct to say: Yes, you can say this way: I have my experience in the Italian market consolidated and started up using the same to broaden it further.
    Does it make sense? Yes,
    .Now I can write how long is my experience and where I developed it. (using words such as 'gained', 'developed' and 'broad experience'.)

    Thank you for replying.

    I think it changes sense to my sentence. In this way I understand from the sentence that my experience is consolidated and I started up to broaden it, which is different from what I am aiming. Maybe you did not notice my last post. However, I understand I can use the verb consolidate, I have just to find the right form. I would like to say that my experience is consolidated because I started up a company from scratch. So, could I say:

    I have my experience in the Italian market consolidated starting up a new bank from scratch.

    OR

    I have consolidated my experience in the Italian market starting up a new bank from scratch.

    AND can I use this different sentence

    I have consolidated my experience in IT management within a financial company of xxx group.

    What do you reckon?
