Strategy and business is in Justin’s genes. His extended family, and particularly his grandfather, influenced his old school style of selling from an early age. There’s no snake oil here, or hyped-up closing fads — for Justin, doing business is about honesty, transparency and helping others succeed with solid strategy.

At 19 he started his own business detailing cars. Then, while still in college, he worked his way into one of the toughest management training programs in the country. That rock star rhythm carries over into his off-time as well. Justin is also a drummer, playing jam sessions on the weekends and lining up shows for the coming year.

Fusing his handed-down values with a passion for adopting and implementing technology, Justin walks and talks the business of each Mighty 8th client. He’s able to decode any pricing structure, competitor analysis and industry vertical then use that information to motivate and educate the company. That’s what he loves most about his job, saying “Nowhere else would I be able to experience every single industry and push myself to understand, and solve, the unique challenges in each.”
