My mission is to help you get found, get chosen and get referred.
Since you are considering hiring me and my company to handle intimate aspects of your business, I figured you might want to get to know me, both professionally and personally. My credentials are more a reflection of how I am similar to you, than my desire to tell you how smart I am.
I earned degrees in Industrial Management and Accounting. I became a licensed CPA in the state of Massachusetts. I worked for almost 7 years as a public accountant, providing tax and accounting services to a variety of businesses, with a focus on Dental Professionals. In 2000, I made a drastic career change and started selling big business software. For 9 years I worked for companies like Peoplesoft, Oracle and Cognos.
Like many of you, after years working for others, I came to the conclusion that I wanted to own and operate my own business. In 2009, I started Otimo and have not looked back.
From one small business owner to another, I know how important it is to get to know and trust anyone that you work with. Part of that trust comes from knowing who I am not only as a professional, but as a person. This is my story.
I am an avid golfer with a single digit handicap. (yes I play Srixon Gold)
My wife of 10 years, Luciana, is from Brazil. We dated long distance before she made the decision to move to the U.S.
There are lots of guitars I could choose to play. I choose Martin Guitars because they are so good, they make me sound like I know what I am doing.
I have been to Brazil 11 times and am always looking forward to my next trip.
My son Anthony was born on May 5th 2012, the best day of my life.
My family means the world to me. My motivation comes from a strong desire to give my wife and son a good life.
He is pretty inspiring, isn't he?
You face an intensely competitive environment. It has never been more important to apply sales and marketing best practices. Some concepts will be new to you, some are a play on tried and true practices. Either way, the stakes are high.
