About the Author
George Parente has been part of DTG Consulting Solutions, Inc. for more than 22 years. He started as the Chief Financial Officer in April 2000.
Then, in October 2021, he became only the second Chief Executive Officer the company has ever had in its 50-year history.
George’s job is to make sure everything runs smoothly at DTG, especially when it comes to money. He’s been doing this kind of work for over 30 years and is super smart in Accounting and Business Administration.
He even has special licenses in New Jersey and Maryland to prove it!
George’s commitment to learning has led him to obtain certifications in Business Law, Change Management, Sales Growth Strategies, and Business Contracts from Cornell University.
He also holds a certification in Advanced Graduate Studies in Business Administration and Negotiation Mastery from Harvard Business School.
In the beginning of his career, for a whole decade, George Parente didn’t feel inspired in his jobs. He saw that lots of companies cared more about making money than they did about their workers.
This made George decide something important: if he ever became a leader, he would lead with kindness and put his team and customers first.
Between 2000 and 2020, George held different management jobs, but he couldn’t fully influence how a company worked.
Then, in 2021, something big happened. He became the boss, the head honcho, the owner, and CEO of DTG Consulting Solutions. George had a special way of leading.
He believed in serving his team and making big changes, which is called transformational leadership. He didn’t put himself first; he put his team first.
And guess what? It worked like magic. In 2022, DTG had its best year ever in 50 years, and they made lots of money.
“In Their Shoes” gives you a sneak peek into how George leads and why he cares about helping others.
He wants to encourage young leaders to be kind and strong. George dreams of smashing walls that keep leaders apart from their teams, and he wants you to be a part of this journey to make things better.
In this book, George Parente tells the story of how he went from feeling uninspired at work to becoming a successful leader. He talks about how being kind and working together with your team is really important in the business world.
