Many business owners obtained their work ethic either because of their parents or in spite of their parents. Valentino Infante was born to two hard working business owners that put their family above all else. In 1995, they decided to move their family from the Canary Islands to America. Valentino Infante was only 9 years old at this time, but he knew that it was a sacrifice to offer him and his brother a better life that lead his parents to travel to America and he always remembers to appreciate that sacrifice when he works his day to day as an American citizen.
In 2010, experienced manager Valentino Infante departed his home and business in Coral Springs, Florida — operated alongside his brother — for a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity with the famed nonprofit St. Jude. Working with its ALSAC segment, or the American Lebanese Syrian Associated Charities, Infante relocated to Memphis, Tennessee to become a bilingual representative for the organization’s Outsourced Operations. He hoped for upward growth with the nonprofit and aiding St. Jude through this vital ALSAC piece.
ALSAC emerged within St. Jude in 1957, founded by Danny Thomas to be a fundraising and awareness piece for St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital. ALSAC’s sole mission is raising funds as well as awareness toward the operation and maintenance of the hospital. Approximately 75% of the funds necessary to run St. Jude falls onto the ALSAC organization, making it a vital component. Infante was proud to help raise these necessary dollars and within three years of work with ALSAC, he was promoted to a Senior Liaison.
As Valentino Infante continues his work with St. Jude’s ALSAC, he hopes to continues the upward momentum with the organization as well as his success. He’s achieved goals already and achieved several awards and recognitions thus far, and has no plans to slow down any time soon as he aids St. Jude in its mission every day.
Back in 2010, Valentino Infante and his brother established a very successful call center in Coral Springs, Florida. That call center sold telecommunications packages and it was such a successful venture that it impressed the right people and interested people from Memphis-based American Lebanese Syrian Associated Charities (ALSAC), which is the parent for the prestigious St. Jude Children’s Hospital. He was hired as a bilingual representative for outsourced operations for ALSAC, but he loves the company so much, he wants to move up as much as possible. With a leg up in the organization, he tries to move up. That happened; he was promoted to the position of Senior Liaison within three years.
One of the most impressive aspect of Valentino Infante’s success is that all of it has happened while he was raising a beautiful family and attending the University of Memphis, where he is expected to obtain his Bachelor’s Degree in Marketing Management very soon.
Valentino Infante believes the sky’s the limit and he may be right. Over the last few years, Valentino Infante has gained a lot of praise from top leaders at ALSAC leaders, primarily because he has played an integral part in the organization, but also because he has serves as a leader with three different teams that have won One Vision awards. Valentino has also been named as part of ALSAC’s Emerging leadership Team, as well as Business Partner of the Quarter. Valentino has come a long way since his family relocated to the United States from the Canary Islands in 1995, when he was just nine years old.
