About New England's Finest
Matt Gianino | Co-Founder, Chief Curation Officer
A native New Englander who struggles with using the word “yankee” to describe himself, Matt is a part-time entrepreneur and 15-year marketing and management veteran in the education, nonprofit, and social enterprise sectors. He has a bachelor's degree in Theatre from the University of Massachusetts, an MBA from the University of NH, and owes any successes he has to his family and left-handedness.
Melissa Gianino | Co-Founder
Whether it’s dipping her toes in Lake Winni, enjoying a bluebird day at her favorite peak, or savoring every last buttery bite of a lobstah roll, she loves her native New England. Wife, mom, auntie, sistah, friend, she is a superfan of her loved ones, not to mention her New England teams. Melissa is a teacher, working in the field of Special Education and Visual Impairments. She has earned degrees from Boston University (Go Terriers!), Fitchburg State, and UMASS Boston. Married to her best friend, Matt, with four awesome kiddos in tow, New England’s Finest has quickly become their favorite adventure together.
Liz Hanson | Social Media Coordinator
Liz Hanson is a born-and-raised New Englander. She even met her husband, Peter, at a Red Sox game; what is more wicked than that? When she’s not working her full-time job at a marketing firm, Liz can usually be found with family and friends. Always on the lookout for an opportunity to take photos, she makes a great contributor to the charm of New England’s Finest.
