It's never easy to pull off a mid-career pivot to start a new business of your own, but Chris Gargano knew his years in the world of professional sports combined with experience as a sports journalist had primed him for a meaningful second act as Founder of The Gargano Leadership Group. He was a reporter, anchor, producer and executive producer at various broadcast affiliates around the country before moving on to content management, including video production, social media and editorial for the San Francisco Giants, Oakland Raiders and New York Jets. But it was his decision to get a Masters Degree in Leadership Studies that set him on a new course! Now he's helping businesses and executives improve their leadership and team-building skills. Chris is also an adjunct professor at New York University teaching classes in leadership and recently launched his own podcast called "Keep The Line Moving".
