Joe facilitates the growth of a company by developing and implementing high-impact sales and marketing strategies that deliver a return on investment. His accumulation of almost twenty years of business experience provides valuable insight in how marketing interacts with all departments and levels within a company. This enables him to identify and utilize all the resources that are available within a company to improve brand recognition and position.

He earned his first management position while obtaining his bachelor's degree. This drive and experience provided the background necessary to join a startup company in the motion picture exhibition industry prior to the launch of their initial flagship theater. Not only did this environment provide valuable insight into the world of marketing, but also the risks and concerns that companies must navigate on a day-to-day basis. After experiencing the rise and fall of the startup, he continued within this industry by serving as a marketing and operations consultant.

Looking to expand, he accepted a position with a manufacturer of commercial strength equipment to develop his creative skills and to refine his understanding of B2B marketing. During this stage, he gained valuable insight into the methods and processes that drive successful business development. He then joined KFMR to utilize all of his knowledge and talent while being afforded the freedom to explore new ideas. On November 1, 2015, KFMR joined CliftonLarsonAllen LLP (CLA). CLA is a professional service firm with almost 100 offices and over 4,500 professionals that delivers integrated wealth advisory, outsourcing, and public accounting capabilities, with an unprecedented emphasis on serving privately held businesses and their owners, as well as nonprofits and governmental entities.

He was the Founding Chairman of the PVCA's Emerging Leadership Board (ELB), the ACG Pittsburgh's Future Corporate Leaders (FCL) and the TMA Pittsburgh's NextGen Board. He started all of these groups to actively engage young professionals in the business community and provide them with a voice to impact the direction of their respective organization.
