Bad Economies Can Be Good for Building Business Relationships
BELMAR, NJ–(Marketwire – November 17, 2010) – Dean DeAngelo, Territory Manager for Heartland Payment Systems®, was elected president of New Jersey BNI® Shore Money Chapter. DeAngelo has been an active member of one of New Jersey’s most productive BNI chapters since 2008, when he left Coca-Cola Enterprises after sixteen years to join Heartland Payment Systems® specializing in cost-effective payroll or credit card payment systems.
Shore Money BNI®, is one of the state’s thriving business networking resources, comprised of over forty business professionals coming together weekly. As a community of experts, they look to build the bottom lines of each member. BNI® members, on average, increase their business 20% in the first year after joining BNI®. The group meets Thursdays, 7:00-8:30 a.m. at Matisse! Oceanfront Restaurant, http://matissecatering.com/, 13th & Ocean in Belmar, NJ. Matisse is one of the Jersey Shore’s most popular oceanfront restaurants for corporate events and parties; its upscale-casual atmosphere is a favorite with event planners and businesses.
Some of the benefits to Shore Money are the three business skills each member learns:
- Perfecting their pitch
- Targeting their niche
- Asking for the referral
“I enjoy being part of the growth of Shore Money for the past thirty months. We try to emphasize to our membership that the most successful business relationships are not transactional; they’re built on personal trust, integrity and generosity. My role as president is to keep us all focused on three areas: people, performance and then profits — in that order. If that gets lost, our productivity will be lost as well. Shore Money is very intentional about the health and fiscal well-being of each member — which during 2009 we referred over $700,000 in business. Right now Shore Money is on track to match or exceed this amount for 2010, with referral receipts of $570,000 to date or over $14,500 per chapter member,” said Dean DeAngelo.
Mr. DeAngelo’s specialty is credit card transactions and payroll technologies for businesses, restaurants, B2B, health/medical practices, fresh produce markets, automotive retail and repair shops. Dean is happily married with three wonderful children and is active in his church.
