Speaker: Matt Catania – Business man and owner of 30 Jersey Mikes. Matt discussed how he went from working as a lawyer to a businessman.  He discussed the importance of having Core Values and a Mission Statement in business. He hires, fires, and evaluates his personnel  2 x a year. He continually shapes his team to meet the needs of the business. As a CEO he focuses on 3 things – People – Vision – Culture.

Lessons learned in order to have a successful partnership:

  1. Stay in one own lane (do what you do best)
  2. Put aside your pride
  3. If you disagree with your partner ask why

Finally his businesses’ Core Values are: Integrity, positive attitude, compassion, education and leadership
