Antonio joined BizLibrary in August, 2018. He is responsible for helping clients add value to their employee training programs by exploring additional BizLibrary features and solutions to implement.
Where are you from?
Born and Raised in St.Louis! I grew up off Tesson Ferry Road in south county, St. Louis.
How did you end up at BizLibrary?
I was referred to apply by a former co-worker of mine, who was also working here at BizLibrary. After my first interview, I toured the office and I immediately fell in love with the culture and the amazing service BizLibrary provides to our clients!
Tell us a bit about your background.
I graduated from Maryville University in May 2015 with a B.S. in Rawlings Sports Business Management. During the summer of 2015, I was able to complete an internship for the marketing department for The Wellesley Hotel in London, England.
After college, I started working in the sales department as a Sales Development Representative at a marketing firm in downtown St. Louis. During my three and a half years there, I was promoted to a management position, where I trained and managed a team of nine reps, and managed the accounts for our book of business.
I have been married for four years and met my amazing wife when we were in our junior year of high school. We have two beautiful children, Gracie who is six and Carter who is three. In my free time, if I’m not watching sports, I am out spending time with my family taking my kids to see all the wonderful attractions St. Louis has to offer!
What’s your favorite part of working at BizLibrary?
My favorite part about working at BizLibrary is the satisfaction I receive when I am working with a client and we are successfully able to achieve one of their training goals. One of our core values here at BizLibrary is “Smarter Everyday;” I firmly believe that this value applies to the clients as much as it does our employees. Everyone can find joy in the positive impact that continuous improvement can bring!
Describe yourself in three words.
Hardworking, resilient, and loyal.
Who would play you in a movie about yourself?
Russell Wilson- I’ve been told we look like brothers. I am always flattered when people think I look like a Super Bowl-winning quarterback!
Why is employee training important to you?
My high school football coach always told us “the second you are complacent is the second you are passed.” I feel as if this applies to employee training, as well.
When you strive to better yourself, you put yourself in a position to succeed and to help those around you succeed as well. Employees who really put a focus on progressing in all aspects of their role help the company grow!
