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.
Mike built his reputation on hundreds of successful marketing campaigns, corporate branding updates and award winning marketing communications programs. He’s earned praise and new opportunities as a marketing executive for commercial and public sector groups, as a communications manager for lobbyists, and as a veteran executive at award-winning advertising agencies. Mike offers strategic branding and marketing counsel to organizations ready to increase business performance. Mike has led award-winning creative teams for brands including Modis, ALLTEL, Coca-Cola/Powerade, Verizon and Lockheed Martin.
