Here at Agon Management Group we could not think of a better way to close out 2016 than yet another promotion to Management! After already opening a new office in Pittsburgh earlier this year, Carl Udeozor is the most recent addition to the Management team. In lieu of his promotion and the overall successful year that the company has had, the entire leadership team rented out a house in Atlantic City for a weekend to celebrate!
Throughout Carl’s time at Agon Management Group he has traveled across the country to help develop new sales teams for varying clients in New York, Las Vegas, and Los Angeles. With this promotion, he will be in charge of the Maryland market for a client in the energy industry and they couldn’t be in better hands. President Tarek Beidas describes Carl as someone with a great student mentality, always listening to coaching and feedback, extremely competitive, and an individual who operates with the highest integrity. He went on to say that the challenges that come with the day to day interaction with customers never bothered Carl, he always had a great attitude and never let anything stand in the way of his goals.
“Carl is extremely self-motivated. I never had to worry about motivating him myself, he just understood his opportunity here and did what he knew he had to in order to earn it,” added Tarek.
When we asked Tarek what was one thing that he would miss about Carl when he opened his office in Maryland he talked about the memories that he has about Carl carrying an “unnecessarily large bag” around with him wherever he went. You could tell by his friendly, joking tone that these two have developed a great biz-bromance. So what is in this unnecessarily large bag? “I don’t know, 3 different laptops, numerous changes of clothes… it looks like he is always traveling!” explained Tarek.
As a part of the Management Training program that Agon Management Group provides, Carl gained all the necessary skills to leading a marketing and sales team. During his time with the company, he also reminded Tarek a few valuable things as well.
“Carl is always building people up, giving props to those who deserve it and extremely positive all of the time. He also gives people a chance. He takes the time to coach them and won’t give up on anyone too early,” explained Tarek.
Carl will be taking a team with him as a part of the expansion to Maryland and we wanted to know what piece of advice Tarek wanted to send him off with. This is what he had to say. “Continue to lead from the front, setting the example for your team. Spend time with your guys in and out of the office to develop strong relationships and really be involved in their coaching and development.”
