Tony has spent his entire adult life working in the home remodeling industry. He began his career while still enrolled as a student at Ohio State University. His first position involved canvassing door-to-door around job sites for a local contractor in Columbus. After experiencing early success, Tony was given the opportunity to staff home shows, events and retail stores, so he could learn to generate leads through other channels. He also spent considerable time in the call center resurrecting old inquiries and following up with prior customers and unsold business. Once Tony had mastered the art of lead generation, he began to recruit and train others as he built a large scale marketing department with dozens of face-to-face appointment setters. Continuing on his path of professional development, Tony trained with Rick Grosso on his selling methodology and spent the last chapter of his career in Columbus closing sales in the home. This well-rounded background gave Tony an incredible foundation for training and teaching others. It wasn’t long before word of Tony’s success as a trainer had spread across the country. To date, Tony has traveled all over the US and Canada and even consults with remodelers abroad. This reach has helped build an incredible network of resources along with a wealth of experience. Sharing this knowledge and wisdom is one of Tony’s passions. However, leading by example is his true mission. That is why Tony owns and operates his own remodeling business to this day. This provides him with the vehicle to stay relevant and engaged, always in tune with the modern challenges that home improvement professionals face on daily basis.
