We enjoyed Ed DuCoin several months ago and wanted to have him back again. Edward has worked in the telecommunications, media, banking, financial services, and pharmaceutical industries. He is the author of “The Glass is Half Full and Frozen,” which argues that a positive mental attitude is good, but a sustainable business model and great leadership are needed too. Edward is an Ernst & Young Entrepreneur of the Year Finalist, and his companies were ranked as one of the 500 Fastest Growing Companies in the US multiple years. Also, he was listed as a Top 40 Under 40 Business Award (New Jersey Business Journal) winner. He won The Governor’s Cup of New Jersey, the Rising Stars: Fastest Growing Telemarketing Companies in the USA (Telemarketing Magazine), a Top 100 Fastest Growing Companies award (Philadelphia Business Journal), and the MVP Quality Award from Telemarketing Magazine.
