Rosario Mannino is Executive Director at INFLUENCE by The London Fund. Rosario attended New York Law School and participated in the law school’s Honors JD program. During law school, he was a legal extern for the General Counsel of Instinet, a large institutional, agency-model, tech-focused financial securities trading firm. From there, he interned at an entertainment law firm that was headquartered in Los Angeles. He focused his legal education on intellectual property, privacy, and derivatives. Upon graduating law school and passing the New York State Bar, Rosario worked as a legal clerk for the general counsel of Parkoff Organization, a privately-held real estate acquisition and management company with about $1 billion in assets. Shortly thereafter, he began working as a senior credit analyst at Brevet Capital Management, a hedge fund with just under $2 billion in assets under management, where he performed real estate underwriting, legal, marketing, and social media work. Rosario has since done foreclosure law, entertainment law and sports law. Just before law school, Rosario founded, runs, and still owns, NY Social Media and Production, Co., a digital media, marketing, content creation and curation company. As the company’s reputation has grown, his stature in the digital marketing and media industry has grown. Rosario has become a leader in the digital space by creating innovative, and unique performance-driven brand and marketplace solutions that deliver high-quality, low-CPM results while also generating deep relationships with top creators to help create some of the most engaging content for creators in their respective genres. He has worked with some of the largest brands, agencies and social media creators in the world. Rosario’s current focus is on digital media and IP as well as his work with influencers.
