Here is just a glimpse into what Reid Zeising shared in the Capital Club Radio Interview.

Reid contributes much of his success to having a value for continuous learning that was developed from mentors and professional relationships. Another key factor in Reid’s life was that he spent his childhood and later worked as an investment banker in Europe. According to Reid, these experiences made the world seem small and manageable. His business philosophy is built around creating a customer focused culture.  This is accomplished by focusing on efficiencies provided by systems, processes and data analysis. More time is then spent developing networks and customers.
