Director of Operations/Co-Founder
Lorenzo’s experience spans multiple industries including business & consulting, education and healthcare. During his early career at Towers Perrin (Watson), his team did work for some of the top companies in the world such as Coca Cola, American Express, Nortel Networks, and the Nations Bank/Bank of America merger.
During his time in the corporate world, Lorenzo could often be found reading to youth and providing mentoring in Camden, NJ, where he was born. His experience through his charitable efforts, inspired him to teach and work as a disciplinarian in Camden during the course of 5 yrs. It was during this time, that he wrote and received approval for an after school program grant. The program spanned 5 counties and 12 schools with 90% of students experiencing improvement in math and literacy.
Lorenzo is a managing member of Quadrant Thinking Inc. of Medford, NJ, a consulting firm that offers strategic advice and analysis to businesses, churches and educational institutions to help them achieve specific business goals and objectives. He also serves as the program director for a Certified Nursing Assistant training program held at the Abigail House, in Camden, NJ. This program has resulted in over one hundred former unemployed or underemployed individuals being trained, with an 86% employment rate in the first year.
Lorenzo was particularly drawn to the mental health industry after observing the severe gap between what services children need versus what they actually receive. This ultimately led him to co-found the THRIVE Program.
