The Professional Dino Venuto
Dino chose his professional title at Social Media Energy with great care. While heading up the company’s marketing efforts in the Pacific Northwest, he sees SME and his clients as global entities. You could say he sells locally and thinks globally. Dino describes his outreach as “consultative selling” and his ideal client relationship as being a “partner, not a vendor.”
Having had the benefit of extensive experience in external sales for traditional industries (with a concentration in healthcare and thermoplastics), Dino joined SME in July, 2011 and couldn’t be more excited to join and be on the forefront of the social media revolution. “I love being with a company like SME that is on the cutting edge of the cutting edge. There are a ton of market segments that really need top-notch social media presence. This will no doubt be the most fun professional organization I’ve been involved with…the name of the company says it all.”
The Essential Dino Venuto
Dino and his two children live in Lake Oswego, Oregon, just southwest of Portland. His son’s travel hockey team and his daughter’s sports teams and competitions keep him busy but not too busy to work out regularly. His first job was as a golf caddy and Dino admits to a 15 handicap.
Like nearly all his colleagues at SME, he can readily and passionately describe his approach to life. “Leave a kind footprint wherever you have gone personally and professionally. That’s a legacy you can’t buy or sell.”
