Having worked for Tony I can attest to his positive, results driven management style. Respected and liked by the entire sales team Tony led our group through turbulent times in the publishing industry and always seemed to be one step ahead of the competition. I would highly recommend Tony and his skill set to businesses seeking guidance and direction as well as motivating their sales team.

– Gerry Bogdon, Global Head of Sales – Phytelligence

I’ve worked with Tony on dozens of marketing and publishing projects over the past 20 years. Simply put, Tony “gets” it. He can easily diagnose a problem, but even better he can identify an opportunity and distill a solution that makes sense. All that, and he’s fun to work with.

– Joe Pulizzi – Founder, Content Marketing Institute

As a colleague of Tony, I cannot recommend him highly enough. I never had the chance to report directly into his leadership, but was fortunate enough to have worked with him on several large scale digital initiatives. His personal charm and ability to influence at all levels of the organization made him one of the most well respected and admired innovators within Questex’s executive leadership.

Tony’s most redeeming quality as a leader is that he’s able to keep a fixed eye on the bottom-line, still care for and empower those around them, and truly motivate people to want to work towards and achieve goals as a team.

Tony D’Avino is the consummate professional and leader. Tony has strategic vision, tactical skills and a relentless drive to create innovative and impactful products and solutions for our clients. The intelligence, dedication and enthusiasm that he brings to the job have a cascading effect on those around him and I became a better marketer, business person and all around human being after having had the opportunity to work for him.

Nicole Peck, Executive Vice President -BizBash

Tony is a natural mentor with a rare combination of empathy, enthusiasm and inspiration. His clear business foresight, strategic vision and ability to efficiently communicate his ideas and goals motivate everyone to be invested in his team’s success.

As a forward thinking publishing executive I could always rely on Tony’s support in creating, testing and executing new digital audience development programs and initiatives. His ability to both understand the goals and intricacies of each business and how to position the benefit of new ideas was no less than visionary.
