Over the course of his career as an Ohio-based business executive, Theodore “Ted” Catino has led companies focused on automotive financing, investments, and technology. Outside of his professional activities, Ted Catino spends his free time traveling, riding motorcycles, and skiing.
Despite its modest elevation, Ohio offers several resorts for those who enjoy skiing, snowboarding, and tubing. With verticals ranging from 175 to 300 feet, Ohio’s ski resorts are perfect for beginning and intermediate skiers, but those with more advanced skills will also find plenty of opportunities to enjoy themselves.
One of the state’s most popular ski destinations is Mad River Mountain, a resort that features 20 trails that cut through 144 skiable acres. Since its opening in 1962, the resort has grown to include the most expansive area of skiing terrain in the state. It is also home to Avalanche Tubing Park, Ohio’s largest tubing destination.
In addition to Mad River Mountain, skiers in Ohio can go to Snow Trails and Alpine Valley. The area around Cleveland features the resorts of Boston Mills and Brandywine, which are only five minutes away from each other by car.
Theodore “Ted” Catino serves as the cofounder of several companies, including GigSmart, an app connecting workers and businesses in the gig economy. In his free time, Ted Catino enjoys watching Notre Dame Fighting Irish football.
The Fighting Irish recently announced the addition of Alohi Gilman for the 2018 season. A safety hailing from Hawaii, Alohi Gilman spent his freshman season with the United States Naval Academy in 2016. Gilman started in 12 of the 14 games and demonstrated a diverse set of skills while playing the positions of linebacker, corner, and safety. During the 2016 campaign, he recorded 76 tackles, 50 solo stops, five pass breakups, five tackles for loss, two fumble recoveries, and one forced fumble.
Notre Dame’s head coach, Dick Corbett, stated that Gilman is a good fit for the program as a strong hit-and-run safety. He also cited Gilman’s character and dedication to his academic goals. Following his transfer, Gilman will be eligible to play in the 2018 season.
Theodore (Ted) Catino has served as a founding partner at 625 Investments, LLC, in Boston, Massachusetts, since 2011. Away from his various executive responsibilities with the company, Ted Catino enjoys following Boston sports, particularly the Boston Red Sox.
Between 1903 and 1918, the Boston Red Sox, contesting five of those season as the Boston Americans, won five World Series titles. At the time, the franchise’s five championships were a league record. Following the financially motivated trade of young star George Herman Ruth, the team went nearly three decades before reaching the World Finals for a sixth time. The Red Sox lost the 1946 World Series in seven games to the St. Louis Cardinals. Another two decades passed between championship appearances, and the Red Sox again fell in seven games to the 1967 St. Louis Cardinals. Boston lost seven game series to the Cincinnati Reds and the New York Mets in 1975 and 1986, respectively.
After losing four American League Championship Series (ALCS) between 1988 and 2003, the Red Sox finally made a winning return to the World Series. Facing off against old World Series rivals the St. Louis Cardinals, Boston surged to 11-9 and 6-2 victories at Fenway Park before completing the series sweep on the road. Boston waited 86 years between its fifth and sixth World Series titles, but would only need three years to earn a seventh. In 2007, the Red Sox again swept the series, this time over the Colorado Rockies. In 2013, the team earned a slightly more dramatic 4-2 series win over the Cardinals, bringing the city its eighth World Series trophy.
Three years later, they bought out the investor and established lines of credit for $500,000. This amount grew over 25 years to some $300 million. The company eventually built ties with several thousand dealers in 30 states and hired 125 employees.
