Michael Taormina: Head of Innovation and Strategic Partnerships at Group 1001.
“The best way to [find something you’re interested in and get someone to take a flyer on you] is to come to the company with what you’d be working on and how you’re uniquely positioned to actually fulfill that.”
Michael Taormina has done it all. While his position now is Head of innovation & Strategic Partnerships at Group 1001, he's actually founded several companies (including Co-Founder of CommonBond!), acted as CFO and financial advisor for even more companies and still believes another company is there to be discovered.
Graduating summa cum laude from Georgetown, he then went on to do a 6 year stint at JP Morgan before realizing that entrepreneurship was a passion. So what better place to go than Wharton? ;)
