WHO I AM
A bootstrapping entrepreneur, Anthony started his first company 10 years ago after being fired and rehired twice by his former employer as a General Manager. Anthony was fortunate to be trained directly by Grant Cardone earlier in his automotive career which excelled him forward at a very young age.
Anthony has become a sales expert with a little over 20 years of business development with 10 years experience in property management and government contracting.
In late 2014 Anthony saw an opportunity in the home sharing economy and decided to start an Airbnb business with only 4 properties. After testing the market, he later founded Airpads, a vacation rental management company that takes the work out of vacation rentals for Airbnb hosts and homeowners. In late 2017 Anthony has been working on developing several other emerging markets in the hospitality industry.
Anthony has been acknowledged by his peers as an innovator and for his ability to create a cultural change that builds organizational effectiveness and propels revenue and growth. Anthony's colleagues consider him to be a true visionary in expansions, critical thinker and problem solver, scalability and fast growth due to his out-of-the-box forward thinking.
Anthony is a dedicated husband and father, and he believes in creating better tomorrow by giving back. The Leonardo Family Foundation was recently formed to support causes such as providing food and shelter to low-income families that allows us to transform our youth through community involvement. Anthony has also volunteered with Protohack coaching young entrepreneurs at hackathon events.
