My name is Anthony and I’m currently in my 6th month of the management development program. Coming out of college, I had some experience in marketing, sales, and business, but I never had the opportunity to put them all together. This program has given me the opportunity to learn how to run a business from the ground up. I’m learning about products, how to implement marketing strategies, how to close sales, how to increase profit, and how to manage a team successfully. More importantly, I’m building relationships with great people and Hajoca has made me feel like a part of the family.
Hello my name is Hugo and I’m the Manager of Hajoca Van Nuys. I joined the company as a Manager Trainee after graduating from the University of Southern California within the Marshall School of Business in 2011. Naturally, having a father who owned an auto mechanic shop and an uncle who owned a restaurant inspired me at an early age to have my own business after earning my degree. Joining Hajoca has completely filled this lifelong desire of becoming a business owner! Since becoming a manager, I chose my location and assisted in negotiating the lease on our current building, hired and developed multiple team members, and now build powerful partnerships with customers and vendors. Knowing that I have the freedom to make everyday business decisions that impact the business directly and in turn my own personal finances through Hajoca’s generous Profit Sharing Model is incredibly motivating.
