Growing up it was evident that Mario Romano was determined to position himself for success. While in college at St. John’s University his dedication to a future profession was so focused that people took notice and he landed a few very coveted internships with big players on Wall Street. In hindsight, Mario Romano understands that this unfaltering resolve is part of what allowed him to surge ahead of his classmates and encouraged him to become an educator of financial management with his firm, Wealth Engineering.
The road to success isn’t always easy, notes Mario Romano, and he’s had his share of setbacks along the way. One major tragedy in this executive’s life was the untimely death of his brother Donny. Donny’s passing, however, served to bring the community together to build a municipal football field for the area’s youth. With Mario Romano leading the way the field was purchased with donations and dedicated to his brother’s memory.
For all of his successes, Mario Romano credits cooperation, community, and continuing education as factors that have helped him weather the storms of Wall Street for over 25 years.
