Vincenzo M. Landino

Age: 29

Title at work/what I do: I am a global community manager and business development lead for Market Edge, providing end-to-end social solutions for B2B Fortune 500 companies. I also serve on the board of directors for the Connecticut Federal Credit Union, Wallingford Center Inc. and HUBCAP Wallingford. I was named one of Connecticut Magazine's 40 Under 40 in 2014 as well as New Haven Living Magazine's Best Blogger in 2013. Founder of the HUBCAP Wallingford, a one-of-a-kind NBIA/CBIN certified business incubator and coworking space.

How do I create connections in my professional life?

Networking events and leads groups in the traditional sense. Being in the social world, a big source of my connections have come from those that I deal with virtually every day. However, I'm a big proponent of my personal brand being on display 24/7.

What's been my biggest challenge professionally?

Spreading myself too thin. I always jump at opportunities to get involved, volunteer or help out. It has been my biggest blessing but also something of a curse.

What is the best advice I received?

“Don't put off for tomorrow what can be done today,” – my dad. Procrastination is the biggest killer of productivity. My father always taught me to be as productive as possible in the time you have because tomorrow will bring its own anxiety.

What do I want my legacy to be?

I want my professional peers to say, “Vincenzo was a stand up guy whose ideas and leadership were unprecedented.” I want my family and friends to say, “He always showed love and had our backs.” I want my enemies to say, “That guy was a nightmare.”
