Meet Steven Branco, Quadruple Threat International Creative Entrepreneur Taking North America By Storm

As an award winning creative, media executive, men’s lifestyle expert and social media influencer, Steven Branco wears many hats–super stylish ones, we might add. Branco is the founder and creative director of Stamina Group, the Canadian digital-first media company that is home to a suite of online media brands, including View The VIBE, SWAGGER Magazine, DIVINE, Images of Canada and their newly launched Canadian food and travel magazine, WanderEater. As a quadruple threat, Branco’s professional portfolio includes his work as a director, producer, photographer and writer.

“Despite what many may think…I believe it was Gary Vee that called BS on the thinking that Generalists spread themselves too thin. I too couldn’t agree more,” says Branco. “You may be good at something now, but that shouldn’t stop you from dominating other complimentary skills too. I mean, it worked out just fine for Tom Ford, didn’t it? On that note, I am, and proud to only hire, an expert generalist.”

His venture into the media realm began with his first design job as a teen in highschool, where he designed a local Spanish newspaper. Since then, he has jumped around a lot in his career, which has given him the unique ability to understand all sides of the media and publishing industry. Being an all-rounded expert provided him with the opportunity to climb the company’s corporate ladder, offering his talent and skills to a variety of departments. This kind of experience, coupled with his drive, creative energy and knack for entrepreneurship has allowed him to break barriers and enjoy success at every level.

While he was born and raised in Toronto, the world was truly his oyster. Not only has he travelled across continents, but he is also a polyglot, well-versed in English, Spanish and Portugeuse.  Along with travel, Steven also has a passion for men’s lifestyle. He can be seen on local GTA media like CHCH TV, offering advice and expertise about the latest fashion trends.

Some of his go-to brands include TOM FORD, Louis Vitton, Gucci, along with Candian based brands Kollar and Mayer. Fall fashion is where his heart is at, and he enjoys mixing up the pieces in his wardrobe to create an eclectic outfit every time.

When he’s not out here being a trailblazer, you can find him brunching at any of his favourite spots in the city, like Shook Kitchen, Fran’s Restaurant, Reyna restaurants, Constantine, Uncle Ray’s and more.

Be sure to check out Steven’s latest adventures on Instagram @Mr.StevenBranco, you can thank us later.
