Michael Vanaskie Named Partner at The Innovation Group

The Innovation Group last month announced that Michael Vanaskie has become a senior vice president and partner in the firm. Since joining The Innovation Group in 2015, Vanaskie’s projects have covered many markets, clients, and areas of work. He is instrumental to the firm’s respected research services, where he has become known for creating customized instruments for clients, specifically in the areas of tourism growth, amenities and expansion.

Vanaskie also has stepped into a leading role within the firm’s community and economic impact analysis practice, helping public and private entities understand the impacts of new or expanding projects. This work has dovetailed with his additional concentration on international development.

Prior to joining the company, Vanaskie spent several years in equity research, working within multiple billion-dollar-plus funds after graduating summa cum laude from Washington College.
