OUR LEADERSHIP

Gian Paolo De Santi, Andrea Mallus, and Zakaria Abderrafi. Three men, three friends.

The company Happydemy was born in 2015 from the original idea of the Founder, Gian Paolo De Santi, born in 2011. Andrea Mallus, immediately relied on the idea of Gian Paolo, becoming the co-founder of the project. Gian Paolo and Andrea grew up together within this project, solidifying more and more their great friendship. A constant and daily work, without stops of any kind, convinced of a vision that could change the lives of millions of people. Tests, failures, trials but with a well-defined goal in their minds. Thus comes 2017, where a live presentation made directly by the Founder Gian Paolo De Santi, among the audience, there was the one who would become the third fundamental column of the company, Zakaria Abderrafi. From that moment the three became inseparable. Thanks to Zakaria, the company began its international expansion, beginning to operate in some French-speaking countries, including France. Thus began the great history of our company.

Gian Paolo De Santi

CEO - Founder

Gian Paolo was born in Trieste (ITA) on 1981, from an unemployed ItalianMexican mother and an Italian-French artists father. He had immediately the opportunity to learn different ways of thinking between a pleasant South American warmth and the French patriotism, where freedom, equality, and fraternity are the symbols of an entire culture everything combined with being Italian, synonymous of high quality of thought, creativity, and lifestyle.

Growing up between Switzerland, France and Italy allowed him to unify substantial cultural, historical, and philosophical aspects. The Costa Smeralda (Italy) was the essential ingredient to connect the chapters of the past and open the doors of his future through a fascinating encounter. The meeting with Gian Paolo De Santi.
