As Senior Vice President of Economic Development and Partnership Gwinnett at the Gwinnett Chamber, Masino has served in a key leadership role for the past 6 years. The community and economic development (ED) organization created, Partnership Gwinnett, worked with public and private leadership to commission ED studies in 2005 and 2011, respectively; and spearheaded the implementation efforts of the initial plan- which brought 291 company expansions or relocations, 13,287 jobs and $813,350,000 in investment to Gwinnett. The second iteration of that plan is currently underway.
A graduate of The Ohio State University, Masino holds a BA in Interpersonal and Organizational Communication. He and his wife – his high school and college sweetheart, Suzanne – are the parents of three children, Anna, Vincent and Julia.
