A poor upbringing in one of the roughest areas of Chicago didn't stop Victor from earning a B.S. in Electrical Engineering, an MBA, and building a 20-year career as a top sales executive and CEO of a multimillion-dollar high-tech company. Prior to being CEO, he was President of Global Sales and Marketing for a $420M company.
As Vice President of International Sales in a Fortune 500 $3B corporation at the time, he was selected from over 500 sales managers to join the President’s Advisory Council for excellence in sales and management.
