Ed Lucente is a man of many talents. Yes, he is officially an Application Sales Executive for Network Application & Cloud Solutions. His varied background helps him to work more effectively with customers from a wide range of backgrounds and needs.
Ed grew up learning the importance of hard work, self-reliance, and self-improvement as his pillars for success in life. This spurred his interest in the Austrian School of economic theories regarding how the real world works. He’s a fan, for example, of the Nobel Prize winning economist Frederick A. Hayek.
He adapted quickly in the many moves his family made — changing residence every two years during his first 13 years. He has continued that tradition of moving since he has finished his formal schooling, working professionally in Boston, New York City, Miami, Washington D.C., and San Diego. His nomadic spirit spurred him to learn and become fluent in Spanish through some immersion courses and intensive tutoring while he lived and worked in Costa Rica and other Latin American countries. While learning Spanish, he also continued to hone his sales management and marketing skills to help customers make the right decisions with their technology investments.
His educational experience includes a Bachelor of Science in Business Administration from Bucknell University and a Masters in Business Administration from Harvard Business School.
