Why he's right for HUAA

Anthony Santagati is a 1999 graduate of the College of Fine Arts and a 2005 graduate of the School of Law. As a luxury digital strategist and creative, he’s demonstrated an ability to predict and implement new technological trends. With a particular emphasis on high-end fashion & retail brands and nearly 15 years of involvement in e-commerce solutions Anthony has developed a keen understanding of consumer-focused strategies and is working to incorporate emerging technologies and ideas into traditional fashion markets.

As Vice-President Anthony will implement a 3 Point Plan focused on People, Technology, and Retention: more well-informed outreach to alumni of all stripes; better use of technology to reduce waste, increase transparency, and connect with alumni we’re missing; and greater efforts at retaining the members we currently have by rewarding loyalty, improving membership benefits, and streamlining the renewal processes.

A native of the South Carolina Sea Islands, Anthony currently lives in Brooklyn, New York.
