About Joe


Leadership, Marketing, and Sales are areas that excite me.  I have spent years observing and participating in each of these areas at various levels within the private sector and have experienced great successes, as well as, significant disappointments.  Notice I didn’t say failures.  I believe each experience we encounter teaches us a lesson and provides wisdom, a necessary ingredient for all leaders.  Each experience stretches us as human beings to understand our full potential.  Without a mix of successes and failures we cannot possibly know our full capabilities.

I have served as a senior Marketing and Sales leaders in various industries including business and financial services, and insurance.  Most recently I was the I served as the Senior Vice President of Marketing and Sales for Distinguished Programs, a national insurance program manager specializing in commercial real estate, community associations, hospitality & restaurants, and cultural institutions.

I love to write and I’m currently working on my first book!  My goal is to inspire others to be continuous learners and to reach for their dreams.

    1. Bob,
      Thanks for the comment. I have a library full of my favorite books. I also like Confronting Reality by Ram Charan and Larry Bossidy, Doing What Matters by Jim Kilts, Highest Duty by Chesley Sullenberger, and a Colossal Failure of Common Sense by Lawrence G. McDonald and Patrick Robinson. All great reads, providing strong insights and epiphanies.
      Hope you keep reading.
