John Pugliano is a very successful money manager, but his path to get there was a bit circuitous. After high school, he wanted to get out of Pittsburgh because the factories and steel mills were closing down. So he joined the marines at 17 to “get a job” and see the world. A decade later John was in sales, marketing and business development. In the last few years of his 20-year corporate life, he prepared for starting his own company as a money manager. He prepared well. Today John is loving life and living his dream!
