Dino Giovannone

Financial Strategist

Financial Strategist Dino Giovannone comes to McKinley Carter with more than 30 years of experience in the financial services industry. Dino began his career as a Financial Advisor at a national broker-dealer. He later was promoted to Division Manager and then to Vice President-Regional Manager. In the VP role, he oversaw branch office managers located in multiple states--including Ohio, West Virginia, and Pennsylvania--and the promotion and wholesaling of proprietary funds.

After 17 years with the broker-dealer, Dino accepted a position with Federated Investors as Director of Retirement Sales, which involved acquiring and retaining defined contribution plans. After several years in that role, he transitioned to Internal Sales Manager for the Midwest Region for Federated’s broker-dealer division.

In 2013, Dino was offered an opportunity to take over a $75 million book of existing business at Edward Jones. While he enjoyed the daily one-on-one interaction with wealth management clients, he was located in Warren, OH, which was two hours from his home and family in Wheeling. In March 2015, Dino accepted the offer to work for McKinley Carter at its Wheeling headquarters.

Dino was born in Pittsburgh, PA, but raised in Steubenville, OH. He moved to Wheeling in 1984. He holds a bachelor’s degree in accounting from Franciscan University. Dino holds the Chartered Retirement Plans SpecialistSM (CRPS®) designation, which means he has expertise in the design, installation, maintenance, and administration of retirement plans.

He has two children: Francesca Giovannone, MD (WVU Medicine) and Nicholas, a graduate of WVU's School of Journalism.
