Raymond Margiano was recently inducted into the Entrepreneurship Hall of Fame and awarded the Veteran Entrepreneur Award as a result of his more than 25 years experience founding and leading four successful businesses.
According to a press release, Margiano started own business in 1984 and since then has founded four different companies, including Foot Solutions and Heel Quik. He is also involved in a number of non-profit organizations, including Susan G. Komen, American Diabetes Association, Arthritis Foundation, International Council on Active Aging and Soles4Soles. Named the Vetrepreneur of the Year in 2010, Margiano has continued to focus on helping veterans transition into training programs, jobs and business opportunities and is also involved with several Wounded Warrior initiatives.
“Entrepreneurs don’t talk about it, they do it. All entrepreneurs are driven by a burning passion, they see a vision so clearly even though everyone else does not, it is in their DNA,” Margiano stated in the release.
