NYU alumni with double major in finance and marketing, André was recruited directly out of college by a Fortune 500 company. Serving as an investment banker for Prudential, his job was to syndicate or make a market in companies to list them on the NASDAQ exchange, literally taking them public. Rapidly promoted to Mergers & Acquisitions, his job was to acquire companies for Prudential’s portfolio businesses.
In 1996, relocating to Arizona for family reason, he relocated himself out of a job! Wondering how to put his skills to good use in his new Arizonan community, he quickly realized that he could offer corporate know-how for small business results that reward management and employees personally as well as financially, delivering both the income and the lifestyle they seek.
Double kidney transplant recipient, André has been faced with many challenges yet he has always dedicated his time, talent and treasures to helping others, no matter his own circumstances. He serves as Director of the Board for the National Kidney Foundation of Arizona and Peer Mentor for transplant patients in need of support, Mentor for the Business Mentoring Team and Facilitator for Dave Ramsey Financial Peace University.
André’s motto: Our blessings in life come from helping others!
