Tony has helped thousands of businesses survive crises. Whether it was post 9/11, during the Great Recession or amidst massive company acquisitions, Tony has helped businesses navigate the uncertainties and emerge stronger on the other side.
As a child, Tony experienced firsthand the devastating crisis of business failure when his parents’ small business failed and they lost everything, including their home. Its impact on his life was powerful. Having lost everything, he determined he would one day figure out how to help business owners like his parents by learning how to run a profitable business.
This mission shaped his entire 20-year career. As an entrepreneur, business owner, and enterprise marketer, Tony worked with, literally, the best businesses in every industry, including Google, Microsoft, ADP, Ford, BMW, Sunrise Senior Living, and Foster Grant to name a few. And he has helped grow over 10,000 small businesses and a dozen Fortune 500 companies.
After working with the best businesses across hundreds of industries, he learned how they grow consistently and predictably, using adversity to pivot towards opportunity in order to survive and thrive in all manner of economic conditions.
His mission now has a name: Democratize Marketing — to share with small business owners and entrepreneurs exactly What to Do to grow profitably, How to Do It, and How to Leverage the Resources to Make It Happen. He believes that by growing small businesses, together we can impact not just our local communities but also our world.
