Giulio Bianchi was born in Busto Arsizio, Italy, and spent his formative years in Lombardy, the North Italian region that during the 1960s developed into an industrial and financial hub of Europe.
He made his first experience in sales and marketing as he was working for Agip, the major
European Oil company. In 1975 he expanded his activities to Eastern Europe and Sub-Saharan Africa.
He closed his first deals in Cameroon in 1980 and in Nigeria in 1982, where he sold a soap factory
in Enugu and a detergent plant in Ikeja, Lagos. During the decade before the fall of Berlin Wall,
Bianchi was the president of Cam Finance S.A., a major trader in ex-Soviet Union and Eastern
