Five EO Members Recognized by NJBIZ
In the second annual "Entrepreneur 101" supplement, published by NJBIZ, the leading source of business news in New Jersey, USA, five EO members were highlighted for their success and impact on their local communities and economies.
According to NJBIZ publisher D. Lee Carlson, this supplement highlighted "some of the best and most innovative minds in business." Carlson noted that 200 nominations were received. Of those, his editorial staff and a handful of highly respected sponsors selected only 26 businesses to use as "lessons for success." In the four-color supplement's "Letter from the Publisher," Carlson described those chosen as "men and women whose best practices have something to teach us all about creating successful enterprises.
The five EO members each represented different sectors of New Jersey's economy. Ed Delia, president of Delia Associates, has transitioned his second-generation, traditional advertising agency into a branding-focused marketing firm with an emphasis on strategic thinking and the use of cutting-edge technology. Christopher Guerriero, founder and president of Wisdom Books Publishing, uses his multimedia company to help people around the world to lose weight and gain energy. Jim Oostdyk, founder and owner of OK Auto, 4wd & Tire, is a nationally recognized dealer of automotive and off-road vehicle products. Tom Patania, president and CEO of Select-A-Ticket, has grown his business to become one of the premier concert and event ticket buying and selling services in the New York Area. Rogelio Santos, Jr., CEO of Voncore, helps more East Coast companies set up operations in the Philippines than any other firm in the country.
B"We all help each other in very unexpected ways," says current EO New Jersey chapter president Bill Brand, managing partner of SWOT Management Group, a Hillsborough, NJ-based sales management consulting firm. "Open sharing within our membership helps us all steer clear of potential problems and take advantage of every opportunity to grow our businesses more efficiently."
