Mike worked for over two years at Deloitte after graduating from St. Joseph’s University. Following Deloitte, he worked in retail real estate development for one of the largest US retailers. He began using the various Amazon platforms for additional income sources on the side before starting an eCommerce brand sold exclusively through Amazon Seller Central. Mike formed AMZ Advisers with his partners to bring their thorough eCommerce knowledge together to help sellers struggling with Amazon. His focus is on inventory management, reporting, product development and off-platform advertising.

Rob graduated from Keene State College in 2012, and started his career in the Environmental Consulting Industry. Starting off as a consultant, he learned valuable project management, client communication, and reporting skills. With a strong desire to become self-employed, he and his friends started an online retail business using the Amazon FBA model. They learned by doing, and branched out to start an eComm Consulting Agency, AMZ Advisers. Rob’s role in the company is to manage their client’s projects and the day-to-day operations of the business. He diligently oversees a full team of copywriters, graphic designers, and data input technicians. By communicating with clients on a regular basis, he ensures all of their needs are met.

Steve grew up in Fairfield County, CT and attended Keene State College graduating with a Bachelor’s Degree in Communications and minor in Business Management. After graduating college in 2012 Steve grew his experience working at one of the largest engineering firms as a Business Development Manager managing and growing some of the largest accounts in the Northeast. His entrepreneur tendencies led him to building an ecommerce brand from scratch into 6 figures revenue within 8 months. Since then Steve has co-founded multiple businesses within eCommerce helping brands on Amazon, Walmart and Jet.com growing their presence and creating strategies to drive top line revenue. Steve has an undeniable passion for growing his businesses and bringing as much value as possible to his clients.

Jack graduated from College of Charleston in May 2016 with a degree in Finance. After working in the Financial industry for nearly one year, he decided to launch his own Amazon Private Labeling Business. Having great success after just the first month, Jack quit his job to focus on his business with our current colleague, Doug Brown.

Jack has since transitioned his experience and the skills he developed from managing his own business into a position here at AMZ Advisers. Jack now helps clients grow their sales and profits through his various marketing methods. He also helps identifying opportunities for growth in the market, optimizing product listings, inventory planning, case management and reporting.

Doug graduated in May 2017 from Miami University in Ohio with a degree in Urban and Regional Planning. Shortly thereafter he joined one of our colleagues, Jack Catalano in his Amazon Private Labeling business. After becoming familiar with Amazon accounts, and learning various methods of growing sales through marketing and listing optimization, Doug found a position at AMZ Advisers.

Doug works as an Account Manager, working with clients to grow sales through marketing efforts while also gaining experience with full account management duties, including reporting, case management, and inventory planning.

Deniz began his journey into the ecommerce industry more than 10 years ago. Mentored by a successful Entrepreneur, who is currently an Entrepreneur in Residence at Harvard Business School, he began to sculpt his knowledge in ecommerce. Deniz went on to expend into other areas of ecommerce including Amazon, eBay, Walmart, Jet, and Magento; and grew many brands over the next ten years while becoming the General Manager of a large private label ecommerce company.

After achieving steady growth in all of his endeavors, Deniz realized his talents could be better used to help many other companies achieve their goals and decided to transition into starting his own consulting business. From there he was approached by AMZ Advisers and made the leap into becoming one of their expert team members.
