Our guest today is Precision Painting Plus’ COO, Joseph Galeas.
Joseph Galeas is considered a people manager with a proven background in developing and leading teams, building relationships, and engaging employees in business-related decisions. His experience in operations from the frontline to the board room has brought him repeated success in building successful teams from the ground up, and in inheriting underperforming teams and turning them into success stories.
As the COO of Precision Painting Plus, Joseph offers organizational leadership and strategic vision to drive operational excellence, improve management competence, optimize administrative processes, simplify reporting structures, and bolster the company’s internal control systems. He is tasked with revamping the company culture as they prepare for an aggressive expansion.
A professional journey that began at the age of 22 in the IT industry, Joseph took on an array of frontline operations roles, eventually progressing to managerial positions. At the age of 35, he earned his PMP certification and went back to school to gain a Bachelor’s degree. At 39, he made a drastic career change from Telecommunications to Parking Systems, taking on the demanding post of Vice President of Service, and turned around a struggling organization through effective leadership and sigma six principles.
Soon after, Joseph returned to school once again to obtain his MBA, and in the years that followed, advanced his career through the ranks to EVP of Operations and then COO.
