Meet Brett Torino

Brett Torino

Brett Torino is a developer, environmental advocate, endurance athlete, car collector, helicopter pilot, lover of nature, and philanthropist who has been living and giving in the Las Vegas community for nearly five decades.

As a teenager, who grew up in California and spent a lot of time on construction sites, Brett Torino realized he had a passion for building things, which he has excelled at for the past four decades.

After graduating from UNLV with undergraduate and postgraduate degrees in business, economics, and finance, Brett became immersed in different aspects of the real estate industry. Recognized as one of the “Top 100 Builders in the Country” by Professional Builder magazine in his mid-thirties, Brett’s energy and determination are the cornerstones of his incredible success.

Over the years he has earned a reputation as a successful developer, constructing $3 billion worth of large-scale entertainment and retail centers that span the country from the east to the west coast as part of his personal portfolio. But Brett doesn’t just build multi-million-dollar structures made of steel and wood, stone and glass; he is a man who has built a deep sense of camaraderie in the Las Vegas community over the years, holding a variety of positions on the boards of local and national charitable organizations.

Of all his many accomplishments, the thing Brett is most proud of building isn’t a brick and mortar structure; it’s the Brett Torino Foundation.

Brett plays as hard as he works. A former ultra-endurance triathlete and long-distance runner, Brett participated in many world-class competitions over the past forty years that required a tremendous amount of discipline. Flying his two Airbus helicopters is Brett’s personal passion. He is a commercially trained, instrument rated pilot with thousands of hours in the air. He has a reverence for nature, and enjoys seeing the profusion of flowers, and the multitude and variety of aspen, redwood, cedars, blue spruce, poplars, and other trees that he himself planted on the ranch.

Brett says his purpose is to inspire people.

“It’s about showing people that if you care, you can make a difference on every level of your life. Be kind to one another, to the environment, and to all living creatures. Do not consume what you don’t need and lead by example. How you care for others will become your legacy, so make it your priority.”

Earth Day is an annual event on April 22nd, dedicated to demonstrating support for environmental protection. First established in 1970, it now engages over 1 billion people in more than 193 countries, coordinated globally by Earthday.org. The official theme for 2024 is "Planet vs. Plastics."
 
At the heart of the Brett Torino Foundation lies the commitment to conserve precious lands like Lovell Canyon, nestled in the Spring Valley Mountain range just West of Las Vegas, NV. Through initiatives like the "Save Lovell Canyon" project launched in 2017, the canyon has become a haven for campers, hikers, bicyclists, and nature enthusiasts.
 
This April, we're extending the celebration of Earth Day throughout the month, and we want YOU to join us! 🎉 Let's show our planet some love by sharing ways we can make a difference and reduce our carbon footprint. 🌱
