He has an extensive background in managing sales and strategic alliances. He spent over 35 years in various high-level sales management positions selling computer systems, software and services to worldwide markets. Vince’s career began as a teacher and later moved into the high- tech field where he created and managed sales and service divisions for Fortune 500 companies. Vince also spent time volunteering as assistant development director for the Wolf Rescue Center; was a senior advisor for an online educational services company; and a Board member for high-tech start-up. He moved to Divide in 1999 with his wife, Rachel. His three children are grown, giving him the opportunity to focus on giving back to the community. Vince’s interest in Help the Needy stems from his early years in the Bronx where he saw community needs not being addressed. During his early years as a teacher he spent time volunteering as an English teacher in the poorest areas of southern Alabama. Later he taught fifth grade subjects at a Catholic grade school. In his spare time Vince writes children’s books, works as a silversmith and reads history books about medieval history, the Civil War, World War II and the Indian Wars.

Vince holds an MBA in Organization Development and an M.Ed. in Secondary Education and English.
