Greg Manko
Founder & President at Manko Marketing Inc.


Like you, Greg Manko has a lifetime of passion for what he does — in his case, marketing. Although most any agency founder can boast having 25 years of industry experience, Greg might be the only one who can add that he's loved marketing since he was just 5 years old. Seriously! While growing up, he would regularly set up a marketing firm on his family’s front porch!

Since then, he’s experienced the fintech and broader financial services world from all angles. This includes working for & with some of the world’s most influential institutions:

  • Full-time executive roles at CFA Institute, Deutsche Bank, DXC Technology, EY & MetLife.
  • Consulting engagements with BNP Paribas, Citibank, Earnix Inc., HSBC, J.P Morgan, KeyBank, Polaris Financial Technology, Scotiabank & others.
  • Proficiency across asset management, banking, big tech, fintech, insurance, wealth management & more.

Now, his 25 years of experience drive the only marketing agency dedicated to long-standing fintech firms. Manko Marketing Inc. was founded in 2009.

Greg has an MBA in marketing & management from New York University’s Stern School of Business and a BA in marketing & speech communications from Marietta College in Ohio.
