B. Thomas Mancuso

Tom Mancuso is a Senior Real Estate Advisor with Vita Nuova. He specializes in brownfield and economic development revitalization through the adaptive reuse of buildings into business incubators and local business centers.

He has spent his entire life in and around business incubators and industrial, commercial, and institutional properties. For over 40 years, he has worked as an advisor, broker, and property manager in cities, towns, and villages of all sizes to fill millions of square feet of empty buildings with thousands of businesses. Finding ways to recycle existing industrial and commercial properties to achieve strategic community objectives is Mr. Mancuso’s specialty.  

His broad experience in service to private, public, for-profit, and not-for-profit projects, combined with serving as an elected official and corporate board member, helps Mr. Mancuso see projects from multiple perspectives and create solutions for all stakeholders. 

He is the author of “Buildings That Create Jobs,” a book that shares real-world concepts for successfully reusing industrial and commercial properties for positive and sustainable economic development results.
