Foundation

Mike Barile and Alex Benavides

Elva Marketing was founded by Mike Barile and Alex Benavides. Both previous owners of their own communications companies, Mike and Alex share a vision and commitment to building successful brands for their clients. With complementary marketing and sales credentials, they found themselves collaborating on a number of different projects, and eventually it made sense to formalize that relationship through the creation of Elva Marketing.
