Giuseppe Riello was born in Venice in 1965, third eldest of Pilade Riello. Since when he was young, he gained experience in his family’s company. After a Bachelor's degree in Economics and Business at the University of Rome “La Sapienza” and a master's degree in computer science at Cuoa, in 1987 he founded in Verona “Intex Ricerche”, a company created to offer IT consulting and market research.
He began his industrial experience as managing director in a Riello Group company producing glass wool, but in 1994 he acquired his first industrial company specializing in automated home video distribution. Aware of the know-how in the field of robotic mechanical handling, he embarqued on new challenges, as in the pharmacological sector where, with Pharmathek srl, he soon created a line of communication with hospitals and pharmacies.
Today he has two children, is married to Claudia, and after more than twenty years in the vending sector, he has decided to put his expertise at his family disposal, joining Riello Industries board, performing the function of managing director in other companies of the group such as RPS spa (security area and automation area manager in Cardin and Telcoma) and Ghibli & Wirbel spa (professional cleaning machines manager). He also commits himself to many social engagements related to the territory.
