Citron is originally from the Washington, D.C. area and graduated with a degree in Marketing from Salisbury University. Citron relocated down to Tampa with his family in the fall of 2009 after graduating from college in May of that year.Citron loves being able to offer motivated professionals a place where they can work within an amazing team environment, utilize their leadership skills, and also gain some sales experience. With a growing organization, Citron is looking to continue setting the pace and leading by example. A piece of advice he has for those looking to grow and advance into a management position is to “Network, listen to your coaches, and have mentors. These are the people you meet at conferences, one-on-ones, seminars, and other events,” he says. “These are people who are going to hold you accountable throughout your entire career.”
Originally from Florida himself, Patrick’s family moved here from Montreal in support of his father’s growing software design business. Growing up in East Lake, Patrick found a passion for music and started playing in several local bands while composing music throughout school, where he also wrestled. Coming from a background in sales and hospitality, Patrick was attracted to the idea of running his own business just like his father, and in March 2011 he applied for the Account Manager position here in Tampa.
Soon after he started, he was offered an administrative role and was quickly promoted to Human Resources Manager. Patrick has won several awards and has been recognized for his accomplishments within the business on stage at local and national events.
“When I started with Choice Marketing Concepts, I was looking for a change. I wanted the opportunity to grow and develop myself, while never letting go of my dream of controlling my own destiny. This business has changed my life in so many ways, and I am proud to say that now I am in a position to pass on and provide the same opportunity that was given to myself on to others. There is no greater feeling in the world to me.”
