Member of the Month

Nick Pinto

February 2015

Age: 26

HYPE Member Since:  2014

Employer: Sentry Commercial

Industry/Job Title:  Corporate Services, Industrial Real Estate Broker

Committee Member On:  Vice Chair of the Civic Engagement Committee

What he does: I represent tenants and landlords in negotiating, acquiring and disposing of facilities and address their real estate needs locally, nationally, and internationally. When I graduated UConn’s School of Business, I didn’t know I was going to be a broker, but I’ve come to love the entrepreneurial spirit and diversity of the field

Where he sees himself in 5 years: I plan to still be a broker, continuing to broaden my skill sets and assist clients with their needs. In 10 years, I want to be able to look back and see that the businesses I have worked with, contributed in making the Hartford region a more prosperous and desirable place to live and work.

His favorite thing about HYPE: It provides a great forum which young professionals can socialize, network, and grow within Hartford. When I first started working in Hartford, I was unaware of all the opportunities available to YP’s. I wanted to become more involved within the city and a good friend invited me to my first committee meeting. It opened my eyes to all the events and networks Hartford has to offer and I love that it allows members to get involved as little or as much as they want to.  

His hobbies/interests outside of work: Outside of work I am, to the core, a car nut. My friends joke that I have gasoline in my veins. I have always been fascinated with vintage cars from the 60’s and 70’s and have rebuilt several cars, including building a few from scratch. In college, I took a second automotive job just to pay for my hobby (which I still work at part-time today).
