Elia is pleased to welcome Roberta Bianchi as Elia’s new Marketing and Communications Manager.
At Elia, Roberta’s key responsibility will be to spread the word about Elia and its events, as well as to engage Elia Members in the most profitable and valuable way, ultimately driving their business to grow and excel.
Roberta profits from a background in Business Management, having graduated from Bocconi University, Italy. She later had several education and work experiences in international contexts, such as Universidad Argentina de la Empresa in Buenos Aires, Magnum Photos in Paris, the UNESCO Office in Bamako, Mali. She kicked off her professional career in the non-profit and culture business and, in the years of the rise of digital media, she put her business approach to the service of marketing and communications across all industries.
Lara Millmow, Elia Managing Director, commented: “We are very lucky to have found Roberta. She brings an incredible array of skills to Elia, a wonderful outlook and also has that magic ingredient: a profound understanding of the commitment we have to our membership. One of our Members said it best: ‘Elia is doing such fantastic things. Why don’t more people know about Elia?’ I have no doubt that, in Roberta’s hands, they will. And they will be wowed.”
Roberta added: “I am very proud to have been chosen from among I believe a group of outstanding candidates for the role, and also particularly pleased to be able to work in a truly collaborative environment. This is extremely motivating: I will do my very best to contribute to Elia’s success and to make Elia’s amazing achievements known to everyone in the business.”
