Vincent Esposito, COO

Vincent (‘Vinny’) Esposito joined Endeavor Plus, Inc. as Chief Operating Officer in 2014 after a decade of diversified experience working as a financial investment analyst.

Prior to joining Endeavor Plus, Vinny was a Senior Analyst with Wexford Capital of Greenwich, CT. The firm managed $6 billion in assets, invested globally and approached the market through a thematic lens. Wexford coupled this perspective with fundamental analysis to identify trends across sectors, and invested in best-of-breed names by triangulating information through multiple avenues to develop unique opportunities in the public market based on proprietary work.

Vinny also spent time as a Senior Analyst with another Greenwich firm, Verition Fund, doing deep fundamental analysis prior to the making of investment decisions.

Prior to joining Verition Fund, Vinny served as a Research Associate for the New York-based firms of Canaccord Genuity Research and SES Partners (formerly Circle-T Partners).

Vinny also performed as CEO of Consumer Reconnaissance, Inc. of Long Island, NY, where he founded and oversaw a market research firm that catered to institutional investors, thereby helping fund managers with building out and supporting their investment theses across the consumer sector.

After completing the Presidential Scholar program at Siena College of Loudonville, New York, Vinny graduated with a Bachelor of Science Degree in Finance.
