“A business is a living organism. After being created, it must be cared for and nurtured to grow. This is done through hard work, consistency, and reinvestment. Furthermore, like any living organism, it must be allowed to adapt to the ever-changing trends and environment.” – Peter Trang
Before joining Advanced Licensing, Peter had successfully owned and operated a retail business for nearly 20 years. Performing multiple roles while running a small business taught Peter 3 key things. First, is a commitment to quality and consistent service. Second, was to develop strong professional relationships with customers, vendors, landlords, and even competitors. Last, but not least, was a focus on fiscal and financial responsibility of the company.
In 2018, Peter sold the business to pursue other business opportunities that allowed more time flexibility. It was from this search that Peter met John Bellave and Larry Kozin. He was intrigued and impressed by both the business model and the personal characters of both men. Peter decided to join the executive team in 2020 based upon Advanced Licensing’s track record of success and dedication to helping others start and expand businesses.
