EMI continues to build a network of top engineering management trainers to service engineering organizations worldwide. Below is our team of trainers which we are constantly growing as we expand geographically.
Anthony Fasano, P.E., LEED AP, Founder
Anthony Fasano is the founder of The Engineering Management Institute (EMI), which began with the creation of Engineering Management Institute website and podcast, which is a resource that provides free and affordable career and personal development resources specifically for younger and developing engineers. After rapidly advancing at a reputable civil engineering firm at the age of 27, Fasano realized that his success was related largely to the development of his non-technical skills. Since that time Fasano has decided to transition his career from designing to inspiring engineers in their soft skill development through coaching, speaking and training.
In the past few years Fasano has written a bestselling book entitled Engineer Your Own Success: 7 Key Elements to Creating an Extraordinary Engineering Career and created a top-rated engineering iTunes podcast entitled Engineering Management Institute which was recently cited as one of the 15 most inspiring podcasts for professionals by Forbes.
