Q: Tell us about your role at ITAC.
A: I pretty much do anything that needs to be done. I’m a producer so I work in the business and on the business every day. I’m also one of the partners. My official role is in sales, so that is my primary responsibility, but I also lead different teams. I’ve worn lots of different hats here.
Q: What is your favorite part of your job?
A: The people. I love working with the teams here at ITAC. We are very fortunate to have the people working here that we do. It doesn’t really matter my duties day-to-day, because of the people I am fortunate enough to work with.
Q: Tell us about your family and how you enjoy spending your free time.
A: My lovely wife is from Brazil and owns her own business here. Wwe have three awesome kids and a wonderful little dog. We are a big music family. We do a little bit of sports, but music is the one thing we all share.
Q: What is your favorite restaurant in Birmingham?
A: My family and extended family are burger connoisseurs, so we judge restaurants based on the quality of their burgers. Chez Fon Fon I think has the best cheeseburger in Birmingham.
Q: What makes ITAC unique?
A: ITAC is unique in that we are a privately held, locally owned company. The owners work every day in the business as producers. One competitive advantage that we have is that we actually live and breathe our core values daily. A lot of companies say that, but it is 100% true here. All of our employees buy into our vision and passion to do business the right way.
