Elena Giardino joins OvalX after four years at Amazon Italy, where, based in Milan, she was Deals Marketing Manager – Italy. For her new position at OvalX she has relocated to Turin, which was where the Oval Money banking app operations acquired by OvalX (then called ETX Capital) was headquartered.
