Angelo D’Alessandro: “I have a passion for business transformation, digital innovation and marketing that I developed over my 17 years in the banking industry, where the main focus of my work has been related to IT management and program execution.
My career in banking began in 2001, when I took charge of information systems for Cisalpina Gestioni S.p.A. (Bipop-Carire Group). In 2008, I joined UniCredit, collaborating with other parts of the Group on technology strategies and launching its innovation program. Within a few years, I had the opportunity to lead the Innovation Department learning how to make Innovation pay in a big company. I have successfully forged a strong relationship between UniCredit and Silicon Valley, facilitating cooperation between the Group and America’s leading research centers.
In 2015 I founded buddybank® for UniCredit Group. buddybank® is a new bank exclusively designed for iPhone with a 24/7 messaging-concierge and it will open for business in Italy on 2017.
In my spare time, I pursue my strong interest in wines; I am a great supporter of Italian wineries and I also have a great love for jazz music.”
