Paul Brunoforte started his career as a CPA for a Big 8 accounting firm specializing in audits of small businesses in the southwest. After supervising numerous audits of real estate companies, Paul took a position as controller for one of the largest, privately held real estate developers/home builders in Arizona.
After 10 years as an accountant/CPA, Paul went back to school and earned an MBA from the ASU W.P. Carey School of Business. With that degree in hand, he became the Marketing Director of his home building company and followed that as president of a national design and fabrication company for more than 13 years. In 2001, Paul decided to move away from the 8-5 structured world of business and devoted his time to real estate development for his family RV business and custom homes.
In 2009, he obtained certification as a professional coach. Since that time he has worked with many companies to promote and develop business skills for executives and their staff as well as conduct numerous seminars and workshops on Goal Setting, Wealth Development and Team Building. Paul is a long-time member of Toastmasters and competed last year in the World Championship of Public Speaking in Vancouver, Canada.
