Joe began his new career in the insurance industry in 2021, after serving for 9 years in the U.S. Army as a telecommunications technician. Following his military service, he moved to northern Illinois/Chicagoland area and worked for several technology organizations ranging from wireless and IoT service providers, telecommunications equipment manufacturers, and internet privacy providers. Joe has 15 years experience leading teams of customer support engineers based both locally and internationally. Joe earned his Bachelor of Professional Studies in Organizational Leadership from Roosevelt University in 2008, and his Master of Business Administration (MBA) in 2015 from Northern Illinois University.
For enjoyment, Joe is both a licensed private pilot (PPL) and unmanned aerial systems pilot (UAS). When possible, he loves to ‘buzz’ the downtown Chicago skyline at 1000 feet above the ground.
