Favorite Part About Working for Cooley: Love the independence and flexibility that we have in operating our sales territory.
Favorite Cooley Story: I had an interview for a sales position with Jim Bonaventura, the Executive Vice President of the Cooley Group back in 2003. We met for lunch and discussed the position available and all the details of the job. Jim, who is 6’ 4” and of Italian descent, described the Cooley culture as a family…. emphasizing the word “family” over and over again. Unknown to Jim, I had watched Marlon Brando in the Godfather movie the night before. As you know the Godfather also stressed the importance of family first and don’t cross the family. So as the theme song from the Godfather played in my head, Jim made me an offer I couldn’t refuse and I joined the Cooley “family”. Best move I ever made!
