Meet Don Ariosto
After 20 years in corporate America with technology-based companies such as Kodak and Hitachi, I started the business in 2001 after the technology “crash” after September 11th. My corporate background helped me take a technology-based/C-level approach to start and grow the business. We are recognized by Blue Cross as one of only a select few Premier Agencies in Orange County, CA.
I have a Bachelor’s Degree in Marketing and a BA in Communications from West Chester University (1990-PA). Additionally, an MBA from Pepperdine University (2000-CA). I officiate high school and college football and basketball in several Southern California Conferences.
