With an established beauty career spanning more than 15 years, Trunzo was recognized globally in the industry as a strategic leader and innovative trendsetter. Trunzo joined L'Oréal USA fi ve years ago, beginning on the Essie Professional team full-time in December 2013. He was instrumental in implementing the education strategy and building an artist network that consisted of 30 educators. Teresa Lopez, general manager of Mizani, shares, "Gino was committed to elevating the business acumen and the artistry of the professional nail industry. He believed in the Essie brand deeply and used it as the anchor of his message. But it was his passion and devotion to the details of this vision that were irresistible." Trunzo was always spreading his love for the nail industry and its people through his adoration of education and development. He was frequently featured internationally in many industry publications that displayed his learning and passion, including Beauty Launchpad and sister publication NAILPRO. In January 2018, Trunzo joined the Redken and Pureology team as assistant vice president of business development. In the last year, Trunzo had successfully grown the premium professional haircare business through his coaching spirit, trendsetting ideas and the immense trust and relationships he built over his career. Leslie Marino, general manager of Redken US, says, "Gino's charisma, pride and passion for his business was apparent in everything that he did. Gino's enthusiasm was infectious. He was well-respected and loved by his colleagues at L'Oréal and within the professional industry. Gino will certainly be missed by all who knew him." COURTESY OF REDKEN/PUREOLOGY Gino Trunzo
