New to the Dock – JP’ O’Donnell
After 25 plus years working nationally and internationally, new Harbor Club member, JP O’Donnell, saw the insides of hundreds of air ports, offices, and conference rooms. His expertise’s in business, marketing, financial strategy, and corporate partnership was instrumental in creating successful business like, Proactive Technology and Proactive Marketing Group.
When “the right opportunity came (to retire),” JP said, “I took it.” However he didn’t sit still. He hit the road to see what was outside the buildings. Wouldn’t you know it, he found a wife.
JP and Momoko spent the next eight years traveling. Now how does that sound for a honeymoon? Pyramids, temples, and the Sistine Chapel – it all sounds amazing to me.
In 2009, when TEO Services approached him, he and Momoko accepted a more permanent zip code. JP’s prior business experience has been instrumental for TEO Services. His booming personality and his in-depth understanding of what it takes to be successful, has helped him show companies how TEO can expand their size and scope.
Getting back into the corporate world for JP has not just been about growing a business and a profit. He is passionate about making a difference in the lives of others. “I try to give back as much as I can,” JP said. It’s a hands on process. He is dedicated to selecting candidates to work for him who show great promise. Frequently, he provides them the opportunity to continue their college education while with TEO Services. Just imagine being a young woman, like Madalyn Lutsch, who learns simultaneously about business in the classroom and in the work force. Talk about practical application!
I think I’d still be missing the pasta in
. However, getting to, “give back,” in such a meaningful way would be an incredible tradeoff, don’t you think? Italy
