Joe Schlegel, MA

Joe recently completed a 27-year career with Verizon, all within the Sales and Sales Leadership divisions. He has experienced the joys and challenges of corporate life and mergers in the Fortune 50 footprint. After working for a large corporation, he stepped back to help a small business expand its presence in the construction management field. He has overseen the growth of this woman-owned business from less than $1 million in revenue to $8 million in five years, as well as seen CM Solutions increase in size from 5 to 30 people. His perspective of working successfully in both a large corporation and a small business offers unique insight and relatable war stories to the lesson plans in his business management courses. Joe enjoys fly fishing, golf, and the Green Bay Packers (much to the chagrin of his Seahawk-backer wife).
