Simply Systematic: Senior Corporate Trainer Pete Storseth

pete3Passion. Determination. Resilience. These are three characteristics that most people strive to have during their career. Throughout an individual’s professional journey, challenges arise, new opportunities are presented, and successes are celebrated. Aleuro Incโ€™s Senior Corporate Trainer, Pete Storseth, knows this journey well!

Pete was born and raised in Missouri City, TX, about 15 minutes south of Houston. Growing up, he was considered the โ€œclass clownโ€ (heโ€™s the office clown now, haha!). Pete has always been passionate about art – his favorite medium being illustration. He also has an athletic side and played football throughout junior high and high school. After graduating from Elkins High School, Pete moved to Lubbock, TX to attend Texas Tech University (Guns Up!). He attended Texas Tech for 3 years and decided to transfer to The University of Houston, where he graduated with a Bachelor of Arts in Media Production.

With a college degree and knowledge under his belt, Pete moved to Austin, TX to pursue his love for the film industry. He soon became the Assistant Editor, Assistant Locations Manager, and part of the art department for an independent feature film. Pete also starred in a couple of ย independent short films – one of them being a zombie film where he died three times! Though Pete experienced success in the film industry, he also saw the other side of it – the competitive and inconsistent side. Struggling to find more work, he ended up taking short-term jobs such as waiting tables, managing a furniture store, and working in a call center. Pete knew he wanted something more; he wanted a long-term career where he could run his own business and be financially free.

pete4After searching for jobs online, Pete found a job with a glass company that promised the opportunity to start in an entry level sales position and quickly move up into management. He gave it a shot, worked hard, and was promoted to management within one year! Pete was then given the opportunity to oversee the San Antonio market working with the same glass company. While he loved the entrepreneurial side of the position, he wanted to work with a prestigious client and a more professional direct marketing and sales approach. Pete searched again for a new opportunity. He came across Aleuro Inc and discovered that they were working with AT&T (we all know who they are!) and other multi-billion dollar telecommunications clients. After interviewing with our CEO, Matthew, Pete knew working at Aleuro Inc was the right fit!

Since the very beginning of his career with Aleuro Inc, Pete has set the pace in both sales and team building. His work ethic and systematic nature make him a prime example of true leadership. Peteโ€™s advice to any new team member is to โ€œstudy your butt off, work hard, and invest in both yourself and others!โ€ Aleuro Inc is very grateful to have Pete on its team and is excited to see him expand the company into a new market in the near future! Congratulations, Pete, on being Aleuro Incโ€™s featured leader this month! Your hard work and dedication is much appreciated!

Never Say Never, Especially to a Navarro!

Just a single year ago, Maricela made a personal decision that it was time to for her to buckle down and be more career-driven; it was time for her to find a company for the new year that she could call home. Mere months later, she started at Aleuro Inc and 8 months following, she has earned the opportunity to expand to our latest office location in Sacramento, California this week.

When she’s not reading her favorite book “The Breadwinner” by Deborah Ellis or cooking Mole, she’s working hard with Aleuro Inc.ย  When we asked who inspired her she replied, ”ย My mother inspires me because she is the true definition of a strong, hard-working Latina.”

When we asked what she is most excited about by moving to Sacramento, California she replied, “I’m most excited about the experience itself and moving with six great individuals and doing things that haven’t been done.”

Marciela’s favorite quote is from a Proverb that states, “Success isn’t how far you got but the distance you traveled from where you started.” Aleuro Inc can see how Maricela has come such a long way and weย are going to miss her hilarious storiesย and positive attitude every morning.ย ย Coming from Chicago to San Antonio to Sacramento shows that she is moving towards bigger and better things and we here at Aleuro Inc wish her the best of luck in her journey!
