Yitzi Weiner from the Huffington Post sat down with Gina Argento, President of Broadway Stages, to learn about one of New York City's top businesswomen in the TV and Film industry.
Gina explains that the family-run business was started by her brother, Tony Argento, who wanted to break into the exclusive industry. Shadowing her brother since she was 10-years-old, Gina continuously learned about the film industry and affiliated industries, such as real estate. After graduating from St. John's University, she became committed to the business full-time.
Since taking over the growing business, Gina has established Broadway Stages as the world's first solar-powered sound stage, created the nation's first commercial green roof farm under an affiliated company, created Greenpoint's now iconic Kingsland Wildflower garden space, and expanded the business into more than 45 sound stages.
Among other achievements, Gina is always excited to talk about the amazing organizations that she has worked with, including the Audubon Society, Kingsborough Community College, Catholic Chairties, and the Staten Island Zoo, just to name a few. Gina explains that her success in the film industry should be reinvested back into the community, whether the causes are for increasing educational access or resources, communal adhesion and identity, environmental stewardship, or helping local businesses. By helping reach more people and positively impact them, Gina believes we can build a stronger and more meaningful community of families.
