Head of Fintech Innovation, Intesa Sanpaolo


Giuseppe joined the Innovation Area of Intesa Sanpaolo, the largest Italian banking group by market capitalization, in 2016. He is responsible for scouting, selecting and “adopting” Fintech startups, that can be functional to the introduction of disruptive innovations to the bank, with a focus on new services for SMEs and Corporate.
