One of the latest entries in the family is Elia Blei, General Manager Sales & Developer.

He has many years of experience on his shoulders, always performing top notch professional position. For example, he worked as consultant for Accenture, as Marketing director for RCS Mediagroup, as Development director for Il Sole 24 Ore, Commercial director for Condé Nast Italia and, lastly, as Managing director of Vice Media.

Now he decided to join Friendz co-founders and their team of 40 employees.

Other than being an expert in his field, he is more than his professional career. In fact, he is the father of two beautiful daughters and a passionate sportsman.


“I’d rather play every sport, instead of watching them on TV”.


Since he was a child, sport has always been of great importance in his life. When he was part of the military he was a technical raider diver and he even dove up to 100 meters below the sea level. He also took part in several swim races, he practices snowboard and he even crossed the ocean on a sailboat.

Friendz is happy to add a professional like Elia as part of the team!
