Bio

As an award-winning CEO of a successful facilities management company, I am committed to leading with purpose and giving back to my community.

With more than a decade of sales and marketing experience in the facility management industry, I launched Branded Group in 2014 and have led its year-over-year exponential growth, cultural transformation, and the cultivation of a highly-regarded team of industry experts. My desire for my company to #BeBetter has resulted in deep and long-lasting customer, vendor, and non-profit partner relationships, innovative programs that drive customer satisfaction, and a respected position in the industry.

I am a well-established author of several thought leadership articles in online publications such as Forbes, Inc., and Thrive Global. My perspectives on leadership, company culture, entrepreneurship, and teamwork are both innovative and informative. I also share my facilities management expertise in case studies and industry publication articles. I am a sought-after speaker, sharing my entrepreneurial journey with aspiring small business owners and students.

I am also dedicated to the advancement of the facilities management industry. Serving as Chair of the PRSM Networking committee, I have advanced PRSM’s Los Angeles networking events and strengthened its New York chapter events. My team and I play active roles in industry associations including RFMA and IFMA.

As a result of my commitment to his colleagues, industry and community, I was named as a semi-finalist for EY’s Entrepreneur of the Year® 2018 Orange County Awards Program. Additionally, Branded Group has received multiple industry and humanitarian awards, including:
