Other positions included a role as a Director of Data Technology for a political candidate, and a sales associate for Guaranty Bank of Eagan, MN, where he brought in over 500M in new business accounts.

Earlier roles found him working with some of the most successful dealers in Wisconsin, including SoundWorld and Suess Electronics. In September, Capitol added the first two of now four B2B new business development specialists, Christopher Kane and Thomas Duggleby.
