Amanda: Market Manager – Brokerage Firm
I’ve personally worked alongside Steve and Austin and have witnessed their uncanny ability to knock projects out of the park. I’ve watched them increase revenue, cut expenses, and improve systems for a vitamin and supplement facility. They were able to do this despite the huge obstacles that were constantly being thrown in the way.
Austin has an unparalleled ability to convey sales techniques with honesty, clarity, and with genuine concern for clients and for the future of their brands. His experience in supporting the repair of machines and aiding new brands develop new formulas is second to none. Austin is incredibly talented; his background in architecture makes him a true asset in building efficient companies, brands, facilities, and systems while simultaneously ensuring client satisfaction at all levels.
Steve is an absolute giant when it comes to improving systems and increasing efficiency along aspects of the company. I watched him save HUNDREDS OF THOUSANDS OF DOLLARS, (No joke! No exaggeration!) from one company’s budget by re-sourcing out raw materials and negotiating the price of ingredients. He is incredible with accounting and numbers – I have never seen anyone so committed to analyzing EVERY line item in order to maximize savings and increase earnings. Steve’s vigorous work ethic, high regard for doing things the right way, and passion for excellence is a rare find in today’s world. He also personally helped me maximize the company spending I was going to be doing anyway, by teaching me a system to utilize the proper credit cards to gain thousands of dollars in cash back and travel points. I used my company spending to take a FREE trip to another country!
It is a real honor for me to have worked with Austin and Steve. I am more than confident that whatever venture these two pursue will be a huge success. I’ve experienced their excellence first hand. They are two of the most capable, effective and intelligent colleagues I have ever had the privilege to work with.
